EA7 Emporio Armani Milan head coach Ettore Messina:
"I decided to cut the rotation and I took this risk because I thought it was the right thing to do against their very aggressive defense, to always have three ball-handlers on the court. Because of this, I had a tired team in the end. It’s my responsibility, I must trust more in my bench and I will do it because I usually do. We will continue to improve.
"[Napier] probably gives us a bit of confidence, to the team, to the players, allows also Devon to come back to his natural position and make big plays. Devon really made big plays tonight, like he has done many times, so yeah he is helping us find balance."
Crvena Zvezda Meridianbet Belgrade head coach Dusko Ivanovic:
"Congratulations to Milan. They played 40 minutes better than we did. I think that, especially our second quarter was not good but finally we had some chances to win the game, but we lost, one more time, but we still have many games to play, and with patience, we will see."
