After the first half of the match with Cibona, it seemed that this would be another match of Mega with an uncertain finish but large fall in the game of Mega in the third quarter (17:31) contributed to Cibona to finally reach the victory 71:82.
Captain of Mega Leks Rade Zagorac pointed out that Cibona deserved win and that team will have to rise in the coming period:
– Congratulations to Cibona on more than deserved victory. This is a very good team that came with the clear intention to beat us. We played really bad. I speak first of all in my name. This was not enough to beat the team led by now NBA player Ante Zizic. Ahead of us is the tough schedule and we will have to raise our game after this defeat,
Coach of Mega Leks Dejan Milojevic said that the third quarter was the key to this game:
– Congratulations to Cibona on deserved victory. The third quarter was key. In it, we lost all the strings and received 31 points. The defense was a disaster and we had no solution for the phenomenal Zizic. He was dominant with 35 points and 12 rebounds. That is unacceptable. All three players who have guard him, Kaba, Tejic and Glogovac have done a very bad job. Matches go quickly, go on, following four consecutive away games. Rhythm is difficult, but we have the team to carry on and get out as winners from as many matches as we can,
said coach of Mega Leks.
