Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv stay undefeated in Menorah Mivtachim Arena and in the Israeli league, beating Hapoel Tel Aviv 84:74 in the Tel Aviv derby gaining a three-point advantage from second place. 7 Maccabi players finished in double figures with Elijah Bryant, and Othello Hunter leading the way with 12 points. Amar'e Stoudemire finished with 11 points in his debut.

Giannis Sfairopoulos stated in the postgame press conference about the passing of basketball legend Kobe Bryant: "This is a really difficult moment, the whole basketball world is in shock with the bad news about Kobe. Unfortunately, life is priceless, and we need to be thankful for each one of our lives. It was a really difficult moment during the game, in halftime and on the bench, we had players that played with him and against him, and that was tough. It was good we continued to play, we didn't lose our concentration, and now each one of us will pray for Kobe. I want to finish with a Kobe quote: 'Heroes come and go, but legends are forever'".



"I want to send my condolences and prayers to the Bryant family, Rest In Peace Kobe and GiGi (Gianna)". Said Quincy Acy after the game. "The basketball world is sick right now, so my heart goes out to the family. It was very tough getting the news like that during the game, but that one especially hit hard while playing basketball as he is Mr. Basketball".

"The way he approached the game of basketball with respect and tenacity is unmatched as this game has done a lot for a lot of people", Added Acy. "Everybody can say they learned something from Kobe, everyone knows what he meant to the game, his legacy will never be matched, and there will never be another Kobe Bryant".

״It's an unparalleled tragedy, I have no words to describe what I feel right now", Stated Omri Casspi. "Kobe was one of the greatest athletes in the world, a recognizable figure. He symboled all the beauty sports has to offer, the hard work and the desire to win pushed him beyond all limits. I'll never forget the winning bucket he hit right next to our bench on the 1.1.10 at Staples Center. He was an exceptional winner. To think about his wife in this unimaginable situation, what a disaster".
