Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv's winning streak came to an end on Saturday in Holon, but the busy schedule continues. On Wednesday (19:30 local, 12:30 pm ET), the Yellows will host Fenerbahce in the Euroleague's regular season last round, in a game that will decide who their opponent will be in the playoffs.
If the Israeli champions win, they will face Real Madrid. A loss and Avi Even's team will clash with Olimpia Milano. "I don't buy this story of 'a more comfortable opponent'," Maccabi's coach clarified, "I do not know if Real is better or worse than Milano at this point. It's all assumptions and speculations. We concentrate only on the way we do things and not other stuff".
"We don't really have a preference," added Roman Sorkin. "We want to beat Fener and not think about the next round."
