With the Israeli league third round entering its final straight, Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv got back to winning ways against as they got the 94:87 win. Norris Cole who led the comeback finished the game Naharya with 21 points and MVP honors. Spahija's squad improved their record in the standings to 20:10 with three games remaining in the domestic league regular season.

"I would like to congratulate my team, we deserved it tonight", said Coach Neven Spahija. "Naharya played most of the night better basketball, they made some tough shots, they controlled the game but at the end I found the right five people to play together, and I think our defense decided the game and if you see the stats, points off turnovers and second chance points you'll understand why we won, our opponents had seven offensive rebounds and we had seven turnovers compared to the last game when we had 18, it's a big advantage if we control it most of the time the game is going to go in our way". 

"I think we played a resilient game today", said Norris Cole, who finished the game with 21P and 5A. "They went on a nice run on the end of the quarters, but I believe that there was that timeout at the fourth quarter when we came out with two or three steals by Alex and John that boosted our energy and from here on out I feel like we took control over the game, they competed hard but I'm happy about our guys and how we continued to fight tonight, even when they went on their runs and we went on our runs, I think we went on a 22:3 run and we were able to put the game away like we were supposed to".

"It's important to take care of the ball, we can't give teams extra possessions", Norris Cole added. "tonight we definitely focused on taking care of the ball, as a point guard I want to make the right play, sometimes if the play is risky a guy might be open but you might have to hold it and not pass it just to be safe just to save the possession, and other times you have to know when try to and put the pass in there and trust your teammate to get it, which I have great trust in my teammates when I pass them the ball so, it's important to take care of the ball; we have a few more games to go and we've been practicing hard, using the game as a way to get ready and we have to take it one game at a time and I think when the time is right we'll be ready, Yalla Maccabi".
