Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv
"After the win two days ago, we knew this was going to be a tough game. Before the game, Zalgiris had a small chance to go to the playoffs and they always play tough. Two days ago, we spent a lot of energy, maybe too much. We started the game slow, but doing the right plays the correct way. Zalgiris used every opportunity, every situation that we gave them. We were weak on the defensive end. We lost in one-on-one situations and they scored points on that. Late in the end, they found more points in pick-and-roll situations. They always found the way to score the ball. We tried to close the paint in the beginning, but it didn't work, then we tried to close the three-point line, but it didn't work either. We scored 77 points with good percentages, but it was not good enough."
