Thursday at 21:00: The European journey begins

The Yellow & Blue are set to open their European campaign matching up against Alba Berlin in the season opener. Here is a brief about the newest additions and what you need to know about the opponent from the German capital

29/09/2020
HOME · News Archive · Thursday at 21:00: The European journey begins
Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv will begin their 2020/21 EuroLeague journey on Thursday as they'll host the German champions Alba Berlin in Menora Mivtachim Arena (21:00, live on Sport5 - channel 55). Maccabi has a dominating 11:1 record in games against Alba and is 5:1 on its home floor. This year's opening round will be different than any before as there will be no supporters in the stands due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Israeli champions, who've retained the vast majority of their players from last season, played two exhibition games against Hapoel Holon and Hapoel Haifa as they wait to make their official season debut. John DiBartolomeo, Yovel Zoosman, and Omri Casspi haven't recovered from their injuries and won't be available for head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos.

Joining this summer to the Maccabi family are point guard Chris Jones (number 3), forward Oz Blayzer (14), guard-forward Eidan Albar (24), center Ante Zizic (23), guard Max Heidegger (21), and the latest addition, forward Dragan Bender (17). 




After clinching a playoff berth last season for the first time in 5 years that was cut short due to the pandemic, The Yellow & Blue will look to repeat that performance displaying their brand new jersey. Featuring the latest sponsor Playtika on the front and presenting and the digital insurance company WeSure on the back. The latest warm-up clothing will exhibit the logo of the financial firm Rapyd - as all three organizations are from Israel who've become premium brands in their field.

“Happy holidays everyone, I wish all Israeli citizens health, happiness, and prosperity. We are very happy to be coming back to the EuroLeague for the first time since March”, Said Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv’s head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos at the pre-game press conference.

”Unfortunately, we aren't in the same situation as we were before March, and there won't be any fans in our arena. Alba is a great team, they kept most of their roster, and we need to stay concentrated on our game plan”, Acknowledged Sfairopoulos.

”Our goal is to focus one game at a time, gain as many wins as possible, and by the end of the season, we will see what we've achieved”, Added the Greek coach towards the long year. ”This is a marathon, this is a brand new season and we have the experience of playing in the pandemic from the Israeli league, so that will help us mentally”.



“It's been a long time, it feels like over a year since we played a EuroLeague game, but I'm excited it’s here now and will get to see what we're made of how", said Scottie Wilbekin. "Alba is a good aggressive team, they run a lot and are capable of scoring a lot, so we have to focus on our game plan and make sure we're ready”. “It’s kind of depressing playing without the fans, just knowing that we've got to start a season without a packed house, but we got to make the most of it and get used to the new situation. We have the benefit of doing this before in the Israeli league, but it's a new challenge for everybody”.

“I’m really excited, it’s been a long time", Othello Hunter told maccabi.co.il. "Unfortunately, last season ended the way it did, and we still have a lot to do. We got new guys, and everybody's nerves are kicking in a little bit, but I think the guys are just ready to play basketball. We mesh pretty well on and off the court”.

The rival


After finishing 14th this past EuroLeague season with a 9:19 record, Alba Berlin, under the most experienced coach in the competition, the 73-year-old Spanish play-caller Aito Renesans will look to take another step forward this season. 

The German champions landed two important backcourt pieces in veteran Jayson Granger and Maodo Lo. In the frontcourt, the German capital added ace shot-blocker Ben Lammers and Louis Olinde, coming in from Bamberg.

Alba's unquestioned star is Luke Sikma, a versatile forward with an inside and outside force who can shoot and pass like a guard and bump and rebound like a big man. The energetic Peyton Siva will handle the point guard duties as Marcus Eriksson and Niels Giffey manages the wings.

HOME · News Archive · Maccabi open the season with an 80:73 win over Alba Berlin

Despite playing only 2 preseason games against local opponents and not holding a training camp, Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv got off to a winning start holding off Alba Berlin 80:73 at the non-seated Menora Mivtachim Arena. After the win, the Yellow & Blue continued the tradition and thanked the empty seats. 

The Yellow & Blue presented their latest additions as Chris Jones ran the show scoring 12 points, dishing 7 assists, and turning the ball only once. Angelo Caloiaro led all scorers with 18 points, Othello Hunter added 12 points and 6 rebounds. In his EuroLeague debut, Oz Blayzer showed up well, finishing with 4 points.

Giannis Sfairopoulos opened the season with Scottie Wilbekin, Tyler Dorsey, Oz Blayzer, Angelo Caloiaro, and Ante Zizic in Maccabi's starting 5. Peyton Siva, Marcus Eriksson, Luke Sikma, Louis Olinde, and Johannes Thiemann on the other end. 

After missing their first couple of attempts, Caloiaro and Wilbekin hit back to back triples, which gave the hosts a 6:3 advantage. Both teams got into a rhythm offensively. Eriksson recorded his 8th point early knocking in his second triple as Zizic converted 4 consecutive points scoring his first points with the Yellow & Blue, 10:12. 

Dorsey's three awarded Maccabi a 1 point advantage, but Alba's two latest additions Simone Fontecchio and Ben Lammers led the Germans to a 9:0 run, 15:23. Chris Jones came off the bench for his first minutes and scored 4 straight buckets; however, Fontecchio continued a hot start, which gave the visitors a 29:19 advantage after 10 minutes.

In between quarters, coach Sfairopoulos spoke about the defensive end after allowing Alba 29 points in the first quarter, and his players responded. Wilbekin and Othello Hunter led an 11:2 charge to reduce the german lead down to 1, 30:31. Lammers scored in the paint, but then the Yellow & Blue stopped Berlin scoreless for 8 minutes while scoring 14 unanswered points; 

Jones converted a triple to tie it up at 33, Sandy Cohen added one for the highlights slamming over a defender for a three-point play, and Jones dished to Caloiaro inside for another three-point play giving the hosts a double-digit advantage, 44:33. Jones capped off a remarkable first half with another triple, finishing with 12 points, 3 assists, and a +19 while on the court as Siva hit a shot from behind the arc to end the first half, 49:41.

Jayson Granger, who joined Alba from Bakonia, put the visitors on his back, knocking in back to back threes and another two points in the paint that diminished the lead down to 2. Still, Jones responded, spotting Blayzer twice under the basket for his first points under the Yellow & Blue colors, 55:49 midway through the third.

The Germans battled to stay in the game; Thiemann cut the lead by half, Caloiaro notched 4 straight free throws, but Siva answered on the other end with 4 consecutive points, 59:56. Elijah Bryant laid it in, scoring his first two of the new campaign, Hunter and Caloiaro reached double digits in points as the Yellow & Blue went on an 8:2 stretch in the final 2 minutes of the quarter, 67:58.

Caloiaro notched his 16th point of the night, and Bryant slammed it in after a steal, opening a 15 point lead, 75:60. Siva and Eriksson hit two consecutive shots from deep, reducing Maccabi's advantage to 9, which led Giannis Sfairopouls to call a quick timeout, 75:66. After two scoreless minutes, Bryant scored a three-pointer, giving breathing room for the hosts 4:26 to the final whistle. 

Fontecchio and Granger made a late push in the final minutes scoring 7 consecutive points, 78:73. However, Jonas Mattisseck and Siva missed their shots, and Wilbekin dished a last-second assist to Caloiaro, who laid it in. Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv starts the new season with a W over Alba Berlin, 80:73.
