Dusan Ivkovic, Serbia coach:
"We were under certain pressure before the beginning of this game since we were playing against a good opponent and against the team that has a good leadership and already had three wins under their belt in the Group. We played good defense in the first half, doing certain things to stop their offensive rebounding - in the previous games Bulgaria were averaging 14 offensive rebounds and Serbian team had only seven -in the one on one situations (Jabeer) and also to defend their shooters more aggressively. We played on a pretty good level in defense, but we were not decisive enough on offense against their combined defense, and also we took far too many three-point shots. We have to prepare for the next opponent and that is Italy in three days, hoping to have help from the fans like we had in the two home games so far."
