Before the duel against Cibona, Mega coach Vladimir Jovanovic pointed out that his team must be concentrated on their game:
– I am sure that Cibona will show a reaction after the first two rounds. We have to be focused on ourselves, to physically and basketbally to fulfill the tasks we set before this game. Our goal is to keep our oscillations in the game as small as possible,

Mega’s captain Milenko Tepic pointed out that his team can play against everyone if it is at its maximum and vice versa, if that is not the case that it can have big problems against everyone:
– For us, every visit to the ABA league is very difficult, that awaits us against Cibona also, which is a much better team than their results in the first two rounds show. They played against Crvena zvezda and Mornar, which are among the best teams in the ABA league, and they did not did well there. We must be aware that we can play against everyone if we are at our maximum, individually and as a team, and vice versa, if we are not, we will have big problems against everyone, especially in this situation where Cibona will want to show their quality. It is up to us to prepare as best we can and to find a way to win on a very difficult visit,
