Nikola Mirotic shared his excitement for the qualification of FC Barcelona to the 2021 EuroLeague Championship Game.

Thanks to Cory Higgins’ two-pointer, with 0.8 seconds to go, Mirotic will play in his first Championship Game with FC Barcelona.

“Amazing, what can you say? This is a Final Four. You cannot relax for any moment. We were 10 points up and they just came back in the third quarter.

But we found a way to win the game in the end. We really fought through even though we were not comfortable in the last quarter. I’m very happy but at the same time, we know the job is not done. There’s one more game left,” Mirotic told reporters after the game.

FC Barcelona, who returns to the Championship Game for the first time since 2010, will face Anadolu Efes, which eliminated CSKA Moscow (86-89).
