"It was a difficult game for us. It was the first time we play together. Some guys started working with the team two days ago. So, it's not easy. We can not just put the names on the court and win. The game was exactly what we expected. The good thing is we won, it is only what matters. It doesn't have to be pretty and cute, but we got to get it done. And we did that tonight. A lot of mistakes from our side, and we must fix them. It should be a long summer for us in terms of playing many games, and this time 'click' came from the bench, came from the guys who decide to win the game" - Serbia head coach Igor Kokoskov.
