Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv opened the new Israeli season with an 81:66 road win over last season's runner up, Maccabi Rishon LeZion. Deni Avdija led the Yellow & Blue with 15 points (Career-high), Omri Casspi contributed with 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists as Jake Cohen, Yovel Zoosman, John DiBartolomeo, and Scottie Wilbekin finished the night in double figures.

"I want to congratulate our players that played with a great spirit of selfless, as they gave everything for the team", Said coach Giannis Safiropoulos after the game. "We had to deal with the absence of Tarik Black, who was late, and I decided not to play him. Othello Hunter gave as much as he could tonight, as he was vomiting before and during the game".

"I think we adjusted well, every player that played gave the maximum for the team, and that's what I like, the fighting spirit and the unity that we had tonight", added the coach. "On the basketball side of things, six of our players finished in double digits, and that shows the team game we had on offense. Defensively in the third period, we allowed only 9 points, and it was easier for us to control the game with the big lead". 




"Each game isn't easy, especially for the new players that don't know the league yet", Said top scorer Deni Avdija about playing in the domestic league. "We did a great job together, and we played as a team. Coach gives me a lot of confidence, he instructs me what to do on the court, and I listen, so far it's going well".

Maccabi will depart on Monday to Madrid for their meeting against Real Madrid on Thursday. The team will leave earlier than usual because of Yom Kippur. When the club comes back from Spain, they'll prepare for their first home games of the season - vs. Hapoel Eilat (Monday, 14 October) and against Red Star Belgrade (Thursday, 17 October)
