Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv acknowledged the importance of a road victory in Munich for the playoff run and appeared to be in a great position heading into the final quarter but couldn't come through with a bitter 70:72 defeat to Bayern Munich. The Israeli champions played their 13th EuroLeague contest in which the game went wire to wire, and the margin ended up at four or lower. With the loss today, Maccabi's record in those games falls to 4:9 and overall to 10:14 in the European season.

The Yellow & Blue can be encouraged from Omri Casspi's return, who missed the last month and a half due to a stomach virus. Scottie Wilbekin, who missed the past two contests, contributed 10 points and 5 assists as Ante Zizic led the scorers with 16 points and 10 rebounds.  

"It was a close game, we played to our rhythm, performing well defensively, keeping Bayern on a low score, holding the lead throughout most of the contest", Said head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos at the postgame press conference. "The game's crucial point was the start of the fourth quarter, we struggled to execute on offense, and defensively, we were missing a lot of, allowing a couple of easy layups. In the end, the game could've gone towards any side, but we couldn't hit the final shot". 



Plans from now on: "The only option from here is to continue to fight for the possibility to clinch a playoff spot, and I'm aware as we get closer to the end of the season, our chances decrease, but as long as we have the mathematical chance, we will fight".

Maccabi's offensive force tonight, Ante Zizic, summed the game: "We did a great job until the fourth quarter, playing hard on both ends of the court. But in the fourth, they outscored us, grabbed 16 offensive rebounds, and we made small mistakes. We scored four points in the last 50 seconds, and we had the shot for the win, but we couldn't take advantage". 

"We fought and battled, giving ourselves a great chance to win but just didn't get it done at the end", Added Angelo Caloiaro. "Unfortunately, that's kind of been the way we've been going this season. There's still definitely a little time left, and we got to fix it and turn it around".
