Sfairopoulos: "This game showed us that we are working in the right direction"

Although being disappointed after the dramatic loss to Real Madrid, Maccabi took the positive elements from the game, the fight, the second-half defense, and the offensive showing that almost gave a luxurious away win.

Coach Giannis Sfairopoulos spoke about it at the press conference after the game: "I want to congratulate our players for a very tough fought game against an excellent team, that has the same core of players, coach and game philosophy for a lot of years, if I had to guess they are a final four team. It's not easy to play here, and I think that in this moment of the season with all the newcomers, this game showed us that we are working in the right way, although we lost both away games in small differences".

Sfairopoulos concluded: "I think we played a great offensive game tonight, and defensively, we played good only in the second half. I spoke to the players in the locker room after the game. On one side, when you lose like that, it's not easy because we are sad that we lost an opportunity. From the other side, we need to keep our heads up and continue, start against Eilat, and then Red Star. I want to call all of our fans to fill in the gym for the first home game after so long".



Scottie Wilbekin explained his mixed emotions after the loss: "I don't like to be happy after wins, but it's positive looking forward because last week in Khimki we weren't ready to play, we were a step behind on defense and offense. We improved this week, and once again, it's hard to be happy about it because we had that game won, we were one defensive stop away. Moving forward, there are a lot of positive things we can take from this game, we played good team defense and stuck to the game plan, that's how you win games, tighten it up a bit".

Towards playing at home on Monday he added: "See you on Monday, Maccabi fans, I hope to see you there cheering, we will go get the win".
