"It's our first home game for the new season in Euroleague and we want to win. We faced Efes at a friendly game a few weeks ago and we lost. We know that they are a great team. This year they play faster than last year, so we have to stop their fast rhythm", said the 49-year-old head coach of the Reds.
"We have to be focused. For 40 minutes. Not less. Anadolu Efes is a great team. Especially offensively. They play fast, they play good and we have to stop them with our defense", was the opinion of Serbian international center Nikola Milutinov.
