We've missed our Thursday nights at the Menorah Mivtachim arena, and boy did it pay off. The "yellows" continued their positive momentum, this time in front of the fans in yellow and blue, as Cole (24p & 5a) and Thomas (17) shined.

Maccabi's head coach Neven Spahija said: "The game was closer than we wanted? I had a lot of games that were close in my career. Were we at ease? It wasn't an easy game. We have players that are playing in this level for the first time, Baskonia gave us a hard time. At least   we played on defense and allowed them only 68 points, on offense we still have a lot of work to do."

Coach Spahija also addressed the fact that last week Pierre had a tremendous game and that this time it was Cole's night: "It shows how much talent we have, but we need to play better basketball". Next week Maccabi will face EuroLeague runner ups Olympiacos in Tel Aviv and then will head to Belgrade where they will play against Red Star. "If you are wearing yellow, you come to win" Spahija said. "This is our goals, just like every week".

The game MVP Norris Cole said: "In the last two minutes we just wanted to be aggressive. They came back, we needed someone to make a play and I wanted to be the one who makes the play. And still it was a team effort, coach had a brilliant game plan and we managed to execute it, it was very important to get the win in our home."

DeShaun who scored 17 points added: "It was a great game. We've played aggressively and so did they, we kept our composure and got some convenient open looks, we also played great defense. We have to prepare one game at a time, focus on the details work hard in practice and fight."

Michael Roll summarized: "I'm happy that we got the win. This club is special and we feel that, like I said before we'll address every game at its own time. We'll come to practice and try to improve so that we can get more wins. The atmosphere was electrifying and our fans helped us a lot".
