The American forward who had a break out year said after Game 3: “I am a bad loser, I never want to be a loser. CSKA made a lot of big stops, a lot of big plays. We made it tough for them in the end, but they continued to play hard and played through it. The fact we rallied in this game, that is how are season was. No one expected us to even get out of the regular season. But we kept on fighting, got to the Top 16, got to the playoffs. But we came up short at the end”.
Coach Dejan Radonjic added: “CSKA deserved that win and to reach the Final Four too. We are not complete because [Marko] Guduric was ill and [Luka] Mitrovic is back after months. This is something we have suffered the whole season so far. I think Crvena Zvezda took a giant step forward in the Euroleague and we could have had better chances to go to Berlin if there was some other opponent instead of CSKA. This was our maximum. There is no need to analyze the statistics of the game because CSKA was simply better”.
