Mega Bemax’s players failed to beat Cibona in the exciting match of the 12th round of the ABA league after the home team celebrated with 95:93 in the basketball center “Drazen Petrovic” in Zagreb.

Vlatko Čančar with 23 points had a great game, who at the press conference after the match pointed out that the key were turnovers in the last 3 minutes:

– I congratulate Cibona on winning. We played the whole game warm-cold. There were moments when we played a great defence, like those when we did not have a solution. Turnovers in the last three minutes cost us victory,

Čančar said.

Mega Bemax coach Dejan Milojevic pointed out that Mega had a lot of oscillations in the game:

– I congratulate Cibona on winning. We had our moments, we opened the game very well. However, we had a lot of oscillations in the game and they cost us victory today. The third quarter was defensively bad for us, and Cibona had a great shooting day. When the team shot so well, and we make mistakes in the last two minutes of the match, the defeat follows. We turn to the rest of championship, we will try to raise form and to play better,

Milojevic said.
