THE TAKE

These teams meet for the ninth time; Maccabi won the last 7 and ALBA's only win came in 1997. Maccabi relies on Sofoklis Schortsanitis and Aleks Maric to make the difference at center against Leon Radosevic and Jamel McLean due to their size and experience. ALBA can open the floor with Marko Banic and Alex King at power forward against Brian Randle and, if available, Devin Smith. Alba has to find the way to stop playmakers Jeremy Pargo and Marquez Haynes. The hosts rely on defensive stopper Cliff Hammonds and playmaker Alex Renfroe to do so. Maccabi has a lot of weapons at the wings, including Sylven Landesberg, Guy Pnini and Yogev Ohayon. Vojdan Stojanovski and above all, Reggie Redding must be ready for a big challenge. Expect a great atmosphere at the O2 World, as the Euroleague champion tries to get its first road win of the season against a team looking to bounce back from consecutive losses.

Quotes Head Coaches

OBRADOVIC, SASA
ALBA Berlin
"Our schedule with playing the best three teams in our group at the beginning of the regular season is not the best. Against the Euroleague champion we probably even at home have nothing to lose. But our aim is to play at least a good game. This would give us confidence for the games against the other opponents in the group, which are on our level."
GOODES, GUY
Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv
“This game will be a very important one at this point in the Euroleague season. It’s going to be tough and physical. ALBA Berlin is the most physical team in the Euroleague, both their big men and their guards play hard. We’re preparing mentally for this kind of game. We will try to match their aggressiveness; we don’t want to fall behind at this point in the season. Devin [Smith] has been practicing with no contact. We’ll see how he feels and then we’ll decide whether or not he will play on Thursday.”

Players

RENFROE, ALEX
ALBA Berlin
"Maccabi is another big and tough opponent for us. They have won it all last season, but we will try everything, which brings us in a situation to win this game. I see, that we are improving from game to game and therefore I am sure, that we will have at least an interesting game."
SMITH, DEVIN
Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv
"I saw ALBA's game last week, and they play hard. Their coach emphasizes defense, and they get after it. We’ll have to be ready for that, and be aggressive enough in the game. The guys who have been hurt are working their way back into basketball shape, getting a feel for it."
