Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv entered the last double round week in the EuroLeague as they face the EuroLeague reigning champs Fenerbache. Spahija's squad looked great in the first quarter and also at the beginning of the second, however a run led by Sloukas Wanamaker and Datome gave the lead to Fenerbache who never looked back as they claimed the victory, Maccabi dropped to a 13:14 record and will face Panathinaikos on Thursday.

"I'm happy to be back here in Istanbul, but unfortunately my team lost to a better opponent" said coach Spahija, "We had some good minutes today on the court and we can be satisfied with that but to play on this level you should play 40 minutes on this level, but today was a big difference unfortunately between Fener and us, they are a top EuroLeague team, and they really showed how you suppose to play basketball both offensively and defensively. It was very difficult for my team, whenever we stopped their game inside they scored contested threes, which is the evidence of the outstanding quality of Fenerbache players, I would like to congratulate Zeljko for the amazing basketball and for the win. We are a new team with new players we're still learning to play in the EuroLeague and I can say that I'm really proud that my team until the last game against Khimki at home was one of the few teams that until the 25th round they were between the best eight teams, now with the last two losses we lost that position but definitely we are going to fight in the last three games till the end and try to qualify to the playoffs. I hope that the last game against Panathinaikos in front of our fans who are always helping us will be the first step".

"It was a tough game" said Alex Tyus, "I think we got complacent as the game went on, we can't do this in this league there are good team who can run, we need to find a way to stay resilient when teams make runs and to fight back and stay in the game to get the win in the end. I think every game is different we just need to comeback with the mindset to play in front of our fans and get the win in our last home EuroLeague game".

"They went on a run and we couldn't sustain it" said Norris Cole "We had to be better, but we need to try and forget this game and get ready for the next one. We got to come ready to fight and come with energies. Last home EuroLeague game for the regular season so we got to be ready, all hands on deck and I think we will be". Norris also ask to deliver a message to the yellow fans: "Bring the noise, we're going to need you guys in this game, we're going to fight with all of our heart, with all our passion, bring the noise we need you, Yalla Maccabi".
