Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv
"In preparing this game we said we did not want to rush anything. If we don’t have really good situation on offense, then we have to play longer positional offense, use it to find good shots and quickly get back on defense because Milan is really experienced and knows how to use situations of what opponents do. When we played like that, when we did not rush things, took extra time to find situation outside and inside in the paint, generally everything was okay. But when we started rushing, when we started hunting for points and playing too fast, Milan immediately used it in the third quarter. They were really close to getting all the way back into the game. We fixed the situation, kept control of the game, and we won. Diamon Simpson and Joe Alexander gave us extra rebounds and extra energy. We missed that for six months. They did a good job. "
