At the post-match press conference, Partizan coach Vlado Scepanovic said:
"There is not much to say. Congratulations to the opponent, they deserved the triumph more than us, there is no explanation for a game like this. There is nothing to say. Things are much clearer to me now. Simply, after the game like against Cedevita and the conclusion that we can’t underestimate the opponent, that they are dangerous and that we cannot underestimate anyone at all, and that we all think we are better than we show in this moment. I am glad that this match has clearly shown the players that they cannot be relaxed and underestimate anyone. Bourg outplayed us in every segment of the game, they held a class on how to love the club! The court is the only place to love the club and to show that you care about Partizan, not in interviews with journalists, not in front of fans, not on Instagram, not by punching in the chest", said Scepanovic.
