"Defensively we were not good"

HOME · Israel League · "Defensively we were not good"
With a record of 6:1 in the domestic competition, Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv played against Ness Ziona on the road wanting to continue their positive momentum. Maccabi was the better team at the first half but ended up falling short to a buzzer beating three 83:81. Maccabi will continue their hectic week on Tuesday where they will face Herzelia as they are now with a record of 6:2 domestically. 

"Although we didn't start the second half well, especially in the third period we managed to come back and get the lead at the end and then they had this big shot that won the game", said coach Giannis Sfairopoulos. "I believe that this game is not judged from its last shot but from our lack of concentration and we didn't show a big effort defensively, and we know that to play here is not easy, they play really good in their home court and they have players that if we allow them to score they can find a scoring rhythm and after that it will be really difficult to stop them, this is exactly what happened during the game". 

"I believe that defensively we were not good, offensively we had some up and downs but I believe that if we play better defense our offense would be better", added the coach. "We need to learn from this game that if we will not play to our level we will have similar problems as we had tonight and we need to learn from our mistakes for the future". 

"I knew there was a lot of time for them to get an opportunity, got to give them some credit Cook made a big shot. DeAndre played great defense, he did what he had too and sometimes it's just not enough, but we should have played better throughout the game it's not just one possession that decides it", said John DiBartolomeo. "We're going to every game with the intention of winning, no loss is a good thing, because of the league we have we have we need to learn from this as quick as we can we need to comeback ready to work tomorrow and prepare for Herzeliya, there's nothing else we can do at this point but learn from it and move on".
