"We got another one on Thursday to make it right"

Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv came up short to Hapoel Tel Aviv 72:82 in the Shlomo Group Arena, which equaled the Israeli "Winner" League quarterfinal series at 1:1. The Yellow & Blue head back to Menora Mivtachim Arena for a crucial Game 3, as the winner will clinch a final four spot. Angelo Caloiaro led all Maccabi scorers with 14 points, Dorsey added 13, Zoosman (calf muscle injury) 12 points and Amar' e Stoudemire 11 points.

"It's a derby, so we always have extra motivation against Hapoel, but another motive is that we want to play in the final four to fight for the championship", Said head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos about what needs to be added to motivate the players. "We need to change our play on the court and be better to qualify for the final four". 

"I don't know how you watch the game, but I see one team playing really hard, but Scottie Wilbekin, who is one of the best Euroleague players, finished both games with 0 free throws although they attacked him with multiple players", Told Sfairopoulos about Wilbekin's ejection. "This is unacceptable, with this type of defense, they should call 30 more fouls".

"He pulled his hamstring, we will see what the doctor has to say. I don't know to tell you", Answered Sfairopoulos about Zoosman's injury status. "We will try to talk and analyze the game, but we need to continue from here. We said that we are the team that played the most games before the Corona break and that this return is risky because of the injuries, and as you can see, I was right".

"Even though it's tied at 1:1, none of us are happy with how we played these two games. We've got a lot to improve on, and luckily we got another one on Thursday to make it right", Said Jake Cohen after the Game 2 loss. "As a captain, I got to get our guys going, I got to do a better job of making sure we're ready to play a good game".
