"We fought and showed character"

After holding a perfect 16:0 record in the Israeli league, Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv suffer their first loss in the domestic league, 81:86 to Hapoel Eilat. Deni Avdija was one of the only bright lights in Giannis Sfairopoulos's squad, finishing the night with an incredible career-high scoring 26 points and 6 rebounds. Othello Hunter dominated inside the paint, adding 18 points while grabbing 12 rebounds. The Yellow & Blue expect a tough week ahead, hosting Khimki Moscow in Menorah Mivtachim Arena on Wednesday night and on Friday, playing against Fenerbahce in the Turkish capital, Istanbul. 

"Congratulations to Eilat, they played better in the second half", Said head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos after the game. "In the first half, we controlled the rhythm of the game, but in the first four minutes of the second half, they scored 17 points as they hit some tough shots. We tried to come back, the game was tied in the third period, but as the game progressed, it was obvious we became more fatigued, and they were more fresh".

"Yes, we lost our first Israeli league game this season, but we fought and showed character", Told Deni Avdija after scoring a career-high 26 points. "There is no reason to panic, we are a strong team. We will learn, get better, and be more determined than ever next game".
