"We accomplished our first goal in the Eurocup, which was the qualification to the Last 16. We had the opportunity to win by a wider margin, but Zadar is a team which insists and fights until the very end. In the second and third quarter we were good in defense and built an important score difference, but in the fourth quarter our attack didn’t work well. We lost too many defensive rebounds, 16 in total, giving Zadar the chance to have a lot of second attacks. Paunic and Labovic had a good debut. I’m pleased with their performance and so are they. Seeing them celebrate in the dressing room, as if they were members of this team since the start of the season, was a very pleasant image. I really don’t see that much difference between ending up 1st or 2nd in the group, but we will definitely go for the victory in Israel."
