Although in the 36th minute had an advantage, Mega failed to triumph in a crowded hall PSC Pinki in Sremska Mitrovica, after Partizan NIS celebrated with 80:87.

Captain of Mega Leks Jovan Novak despite temperatures, provided a very solid performance with 14 points and 4 assists, at a press conference after the match, said that Partizan showed more desire for triumph:

– Congratulations to Partizan on deserved victory. They showed more desire to triumph, they had more rebounds. We did not respond aggressively to their game and in the end we deserved to be defeated,

said Novak.

Coach of Mega Leks said that Mega this season is missing character to overcome the great teams:

– Congratulations to the team of Partizan on win. My team this season simply does not have the character to win against big teams. Absolutely not matter who plays for the opponents, if they see Crvena zvezda, Partizan, Cedevita, Buducnost, the outcome is known. Because of such a character and we struggled to survive and thankfully we won. My best to Partizan in the finish in the regional league,

said Milojevic.
