Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv closed the double EuroLeague clash on Thursday with an excellent home win over TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz, 91:82. Giannis Sfairopoulos's squad registered a balanced attacking game and a fine defensive effort improving their European record to 9:11. The Israeli champions came determined from the get-go, receiving points from all 12 players and excellent contribution from several players. 

Yovel Zoosman finished the night with 11 points (3 threes), 3 assists, and a strong defensive showing. Othello Hunter added 14 points and 5 rebounds, Elijah Bryant 14 points, and 4 assists Angelo Caloiaro 12 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals. Now the Yellow & Blue await for next week's matchup as Real Madrid will come into Menora Mivtachim Arena to face Giannis Sfairopoulos's squad. 



Head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos explained his thoughts about the win: "The team was determined to play tough, aggressive, and I'm very satisfied and happy how everyone responded after Tuesday's loss. Tonight all of the players helped in this win no matter how many minutes they've played. We had great concentration, our defensive rebound was really good, and we improved in the second half. Generally, we also did a great job offensively, which kept us in control throughout the game".

"The talent of both teams came out tonight as it was a tough contest, Said Yovel Zoosman, who scored a season-high 11 points. "In the end, we won through our defense. I don't think we will score 91 points each game, we did allow more than we usually do, but in crunch time, we made the right decisions, which gave us the victory".

Elijah Bryant, who's maintaining another highly productive season, added about the keys for every single night: "We all came out and played with confidence, and a lot of guys scored. It was a great team performance. Defense wins games, it's about energy, fighting spirit where on offense, some nights might not be your night, but you can always box out your man and stay locked in on defense".
