Here is what the Italian coach said in the press conference following the loss of Partizan to Crvena Zvezda in Game 3 of the semi-finals in the ABA League:

“Congratulations to Crvena Zvezda. They were the favorites and they played as favorites. I think they were better, stronger. They were designed to return to the EuroLeague.

It’s not a moment for deeper analysis. We will not stop until Partizan returns where it belongs. We never managed to hit a basket. Never, never, never. It was very difficult to play. It wasn’t a matter of fighting. But quality.”
