Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv wanted to continue their positive momentum the EuroLeague going as they faced FC Barcelona. The yellows imposed their will throughout the first three quarter enroute of an 85:52 lead, the Catalan's went on a massive damage control trimming Maccabi's lead but in the end coach Sfairopoulos' squad stood their ground securing the 99:83 win improving their record to 8:11 in the EuroLeague. Maccabi will now focus on their upcoming game against Hapoel Tel Aviv on Sunday 21:00 local. 

"I want to congratulate our players for the great game that we had tonight", said coach Giannis Sfairopoulos. "Today we showed how we can play and how we can be as a team. That was a total team game and a great game defensively and offensively we disorganized Barcelona's offense, and offensively we had great rhythm sharing the ball moving the ball and everybody helped the team, it's true that in the last period we lost our concentration we give up some points, we didn't execute mainly on offense and after that they hit some transition points three point shots, layups and they cut down the difference, but this is sometimes normal because you cannot keep the same rhythm for the whole game and this doesn't take anything from the glory of this victory and the importance of this victory because this is a great win".

"Every game from here on out is important", said Scottie Wilbekin. "We want to ride this momentum that we have right now and keep playing well because we're playing really well. We were moving the ball playing good defense, playing with a lot of energy those are the good things and we learned, don't stop being aggressive don't take your foot of the gas gotta play for 40 minutes. You never know what to expect but we definitely wanted to come out aggressive because they beat us pretty easily in their place and we didn't want the same thing happening in our home. When it got close to 15-16 points we had to really re-focus and make sure we got that done. We still got work to do but we're moving in the right direction".

"Barcelona is a good team", said Johnny O'Bryant, who finished the game with 15P&7R. "We just did a great job at hitting shots and playing defense and just getting out to a great start and we never looked back. We just stayed with it we've been getting great looks all night, we went cold for a little bit and we just had to buckle up and get stops and play some defense. Everybody made shots, we passed the ball around and hit guys in their spots and they made shots. The playoffs is still a long way away, what we can do is just look forward to the next game and take it one game at a time and keep building. The fans were amazing if we continue to have their support I think the sky is the limit for us".
