Before the duel against Cedevita Olimpija, Mega’s coach Vladimir Jovanovic stated that his team will try to use every chance that arises in Ljubljana:

– A very motivated opponent is waiting for us, considering that in the last round they are solving the issue of their entry into the playoffs. Cedevita Olimpija is a team that was made for the highest possible achievements in the ABA league and in the Eurocup. It is certain that they will enter the match with an increased dose of motivation and energy with the desire to finish it in the best way, while waiting for favorable results in other matches. They are certainly among the best attacking teams this season in the ABA, they rely more on the backcourt, which is very high quality, led by Blazic and Perry, as well as on the shot for three points, where five, six players that have very high percentages of shots for three. They have practically the same number of shots for two and three, which is why it is not easy to play against them. I sincerely would like us to come out with an increased dose of motivation and energy and I hope we will do that. We have also had personal problems in recent weeks due to injuries, absences from the roster that we did not manage to compensate in the right way, and for those reasons the result suffered somewhere. I hope for a quality and good match all 40 minutes. We who will go to Ljubljana in a slightly younger team, for all the youth we already have, will try our best to match Cedevita Olimpija in the right way and to use every chance that comes our way,

said Jovanovic.
