Mega Bemax coach Dejan Milojevic stressed before game in Bar that his team should not allow to many open shots for Mornar
– On Saturday, we play against in offence very potent team of Mornar. They have some great shooters on the team along with an extremely experienced center line. It is clear that as a team we rose, we celebrated in Laktasi, we played excellent against Partizan for 3 quarters. With good energy and aggressive defense, we have to show a greater desire for win from the opponents, to fight for every ball, rebound, not to allow them many open shots because if they start hitting, then much stronger teams than us are in trouble. The matches at the Bar were usually very exciting and difficult, I believe it will be this time. In terms of quality, they are one of the strongest teams in the league, it is up to us to do our best and for what it will be enough in the end, we will see,

They are certainly the favorites in this duel, but it is up to us to try to create a surprise that would be extremely important to us as well as for the confidence and results of the team,
