"We will continue to fight, we are Maccabi"
The playoffs quest of Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv sustained a major blow as the yellows lost 83:85 to Zalgiris at home. The crew in yellow and blue imposed their will enroute of 45:36 lead at halftime. In the second half Maccabi managed to take the double digit lead again but Zalgiris kept their composure to take the come from behind away win. Maccabi will now travel to Moscow where they will face Khimki region Moscow.  

"This is a bad result for us, we wanted a lot to win the game", said coach Giannis Sfairopoulos. "I think that we started the game very nervous and stressed and in general all the game we were under pressure and this is why we turned over the ball 22 times, it became a close game and if you want win against a good opponent you score 83 points but out of the turnovers they scored 30 points, we gave up 30 easy points and especially in the moments we had fouls to give, specifically in the fourth quarter that we were leading and we had fouls to give". 

"After the turnovers we gave also a basket and a fouls two times although we had fouls to give to stop easy baskets", coach Sfairopoulos added. "That's the reason that we didn't have a good game but I can say that three times that we got the lead three times and we couldn't keep this lead with a stable performance, we had a lot of ups and downs during the game. We have three more games and we will fight until the end and we will see what happens, of course are chances are very few but what can we do, we will continue to fight, we are Maccabi. I want to thank our fans that supported us and created this atmosphere and they fight with us until the end, we thank them a lot and we hope we will give them happiness in the future".

"We had a bunch of turnovers in a row when we were up I think it was by 13 they made a 7:0 run", said Michael Roll. "They got a couple of baskets and fouls and they had the momentum. Milaknis' three was big, put them up and we weren't able to respond, the story of the games was the turnovers, nothing changes for us, we're gonna fight every game ".

"I don't care about my personal performance", said Yovel Zoosman. "We lost and that's disappointing, things are not in our hands. We fouled twice on made baskets and we should have never allowed it, a few baskets that they made in the last seconds of the possession, 22 seconds of good defense they took the rebound, the ball got somehow to their hands and they scored, those little things had a big impact".
