Zadar coach Daniel Jusup is overjoyed, especially since two points were won without the best player Luka Božić.
“To tell you the truth, we didn’t hope for this kind of result. Zvezda played on Friday, we played a difficult game on Friday. Besides, we don’t use Christmas. We came here to save our lives. When you fell alone against Zvezda, you don’t wait. The boys had a good shooting, with a great three-point percentage. I see that we were better in the rebound as well. I’m overjoyed, what can I say. I saw that it was 16-2 in the head-to-head score. I’m happy that this is the third win and that I am at the head of that team,” said Jusup.
Yusup is aware that they have prepared a surprise.
“It’s a great feeling. We’re overjoyed. We came modestly. However, when the game opens, that’s basketball and the beauty of basketball. Some shots went in. Congratulations to the guys, this should last until the end. We played against a Euroleague team, this is the biggest victory in this season,” said Jusup.
After this victory, Zadar is at 4-2, Crvena zvezda is at 4-1 with a game in hand.
