After the game, he gave a post-game interview to the EuroLeague for the first time this season and spoke about some amusing comments from coach Sarunas Jasikevicius.

"Coach told me, he gave me some sh*t about finally doing a post-game interview in EuroLeague. He said it's only for good players. I'll try to be more consistent and hopefully, he'll be more proud of me."

On a more serious note, Hayes-Davis spoke about the atmosphere at Aleksandar Nikolic Hall: "We knew it was going to be a tough game. This is a fantastic atmosphere. These fans do a great job of making it tough to play here. As an opponent on the road, we love these games. It’s always good to get a win on the road against a good team."

Jasikevicius was happy with the win in light of the difficult schedule his team is on: "It's exactly what we expected. In some situations, we got a little bit lucky, they missed some open looks. We found a way to get to the line at the end. Here, you just take a win, especially with our schedule, with our situation, and go home. So we are very happy."

He also joked about his players taking pictures with top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic, who came to support Crvena Zvezda tonight: "Did the players go take a picture with Djokovic after the game? Then I will give them a fine! It's a joke, I love Nole, I actually saw his first-ever win in Wimbledon."
