Mega Bemax players failed to reach the third victory in the ABA League after Petrol Olimpija reached the break in Sremska Mitrovica with 77:86.
The most effective in the ranks of Mega Bemax was captain Nikola Rebic with 18 points. At the press conference after the match, he pointed out that Mega was not at the height of the task:
– When we look at the entire game, we see Olimpija had more energy and they deserved victory. We entered softly into the match, we were not at the height of the task as against the Mornar and we did not show the game that should adorn us. In the end, we all regained it, we missed a lot of easy points and many open shots and we didn’t win. Now are following two very difficult matches against Buducnost and Cedevita and we will do our best to achieve the best results,
Coach of Mega Bemax Dejan Milojević pointed out that the team played a bad match, primarily defensively:
– Congratulations to Olimpija in, today we were very bad, first of defensively. We allowed a lot of offensive rebounds to Olimpija and when we needed to resolve the match, from these offensive rebounds they returned to the match and scored easy points. In the end, in crucial moments, they hit some shots, we did not and that’s it. Going further, there will certainly be oscillations in our game, but it is an integral part of the sport. We will watch as soon as possible to get up after this defeat and play as good as possible against us against Buducnost,
