“I want to congratulate Andorra for the win. We played the game that we expected, very hard and very difficult,” Obradovic said in the post-game conference. “We had a lot of ups and downs during the game, and it’s obvious the third quarter hurt us very much.” 

“We tried to come back after that, and we had some kind of possibility, but at the end, the victory went to the better team for sure,” the Serbian coach added.

Obradovic also said that his team’s ball movement was poor but praised his players’ effort, who fought until the very end.

“We missed too many 3-pointers, and we did not play well. We only had six assists. We fought to the end, and I can’t complain about that, the players are always fighting, and I want to thank them for that. 

But it was not enough to win. We tried to understand their style of play in defense, we didn’t have a good positioning at some points. The movement of the ball was too slow, we lacked speed in that segment,” Obradovic concluded.
