Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv improved to 4:2 on the EuroLeague campaign with a convincing 90:65 win over Olympiacos in Piraeus. The Greeks played well in the opening minutes, but from then on out, Giannis Sfairopoulos's squad dominated on their way to their fourth straight EuroLeague win.

"Great overall defense, we came out and played good on that side of the ball". Told Quincy Acy about the keys for the win, after ending his night with 8 points and 8 rebounds. "Defense is the key, everybody is buying in and competing on the defensive end. That what coach has been emphasizing, and we played a great team game".

"First off, I want to thank the President of Olympiacos for the honor today, I also want to thank the fans for their warm welcome". Said Giannis Sfairopoulos in his opening statement. "About the game, defensively we were really good other than the first three minutes, we weren't concentrated at the start, and we weren't performing as I liked and that's why I took a timeout. I think after the timeout, we got more concentrated, we followed our game-plan, and slowly we came back to the game. Then we took the lead and won all of the periods, something that was really important for us".

"We started to get into the game through good defense, and then we scored easy baskets through transition." Added Sfairopoulos. "In the second half our defense was excellent, allowing only 35 points, and that was the most important part of our game, that we were able to keep Olympiacos on 65 points on their home court. We need to continue to stay humble, to work hard in our way because there is a long way to go. We can't overreact, we just won an away game". Concluded Maccabi's coach.

"It is huge to get two wins on back to back, we didn't do that all last year". Said Scottie Wilbekin after finishing an excellent week with three wins and 54 personal points. "It's valuable because both teams are tired, especially in the second game, so moving forward, it's big for us. It's a long season, and we got a long way to go, but I like our progress". 

"I need to provide that energy off the bench every night. I've been struggling a little bit, but I got it going tonight, and I need to stay confident". Said Tyler Dorsey, who scored 19 points in the victory. "In the first half, we picked it up defensively, and that led us to run in transition, and it made easier reads. We played well in the second half, way better than the first".
