"This is a night that nothing went well for our team. We played against a team that we knew is very athletic, will push the tempo and go a lot in the open court. A lot of isolations and a lot of uptempo game. From one side, we did not start good defensively; we let them score one-on-one tough baskets, but easy. We were not aggressive. From the other side on offense we lost our concentration. Maccabi packed the paint, they tried not to give us layups, so we had a lot of open shorts that we missed. And as the game was going on, we started to be nervous to shoot from outside. We missed a lot of open shots, so that hurt us and hurt our defense more. Although in halftime we tried to restart our offense and defense, in the beginning of the second half was very bad. The beginning of the third period we were bad offensively and defensively and they scored a lot of easy points. They got a bigger lead. We tried to press at the end. We played with five guards, we cut down the difference, but we didn’t do anything more. Maccabi deserved to win. "
