“A very important win for us. Defense was the key to the game for the most part, as well as our attack organization. My players did a great job against Šengelia and Thomason, the statistics say we had 20 points from transition. With our good defense and high motivation , we were in a position to help each other, not only individually, but also with team defense. That opened the door for us to play faster in attack. We were good in positional attack, but we have the talent to make even better decisions. The important thing is that we did, because it gives us a good basis for continuing the qualifications”said Svetislav Pešić.

The “Orlov” coach also praised Cincadze who played the last match in the Georgia jersey (217 appearances), saying that it was clear that he was very motivated, but also that no matter how well they guarded him, he twice equalized the game “with his behavior and commitment”.
