Maccabi Electra Tel AvivBesides sealing its ticket to the Quarterfinal Playoffs on Thursday night, Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv also set a new Euroleague record for points in one quarter with 43. Maccabi broke the previous record of 41 set almost 10 years ago and since tied once, both times in the regular season. Maccabi's record is all the more remarkable for having come in a Top 16 game with qualification on the line and doing all the scoring when it was needed most - in the fourth quarter. Maccabi defeated Montepaschi Siena 97-82.
