Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv's great stretch continued on Sunday with an impressive performance by Giannis Sfairopoulos squad beating Hapoel Holon in the Israeli Winner League, 100:81. The Yellow & Blue's next challenge will be on Thursday as they return to the EuroLeague, heading out on the road to Olimpia Milano. 

Like on Thursday's State Cup Semifinals, Oz Blayzer finished as the top scorer with 19 points while adding 6 rebounds as T.J. Cline received his first minutes under the Yellow & Blue jersey, responding with 9 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists. Chris Jones, who wasn't registered in the last couple of games, completed a perfect night with 15 points (100% FG) and 9 assists.



"I want to congratulate the players for the way they played, they were very focused mentally from the start playing really well on both sides of the court, which led to a double-digit margin", Praised head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos after the win. "We kept them on a low score, and we deserve to win by the way we performed throughout the game". 

"I'm happy how Chris Jones performed tonight, I congratulated him in the locker room, and he deserves credit because it's not easy to play the way he dad after being out for a couple of games", Added Sfairopoulos about Jones great game.

"We played many Israeli League games, a Cup game, and I want to say I'm delighted with the way we are fighting. Till now, we are standing in all of our goals, winning the Israeli Winners Cup, reaching the State Cup Finals, holding the first position in the Israeli League, and fighting for a playoff spot in Europe. I told the players that now this is the most important portion of the season, and we need to show up and give our maximum to succeed in most of our goals if not all of them".



"It's an honor to be here, and I know it's a privilege, so when I'm in between those lines, I'm going to give everything I have on both ends of the court", Said T.J. Cline after his successful debut. "This team is so great in welcoming me and making me feel like family since the minute I got here, and that goes a long way mentally translating on the court physically". 

"So, when you got EuroLeague guys constantly giving you advice and pointers, and guys who've been in the NBA at a very high level. To get to learn from these guys helped me make my job tonight incredibly easy, and I just do the little things to try and help this team".

"I'm here to do a job, and that's whatever coach asks me", answered the forward about his playing time expectations. "The Milano game is next, and I'm going to wait for direction on what we have, and then I'm going to do everything I have. If I'm not registered, I'll be cheering my team, being the best cheerleader, the best teammate I can be, and if I am on the court, then I'm going to be the best player I can be. That's just the mindset you can control, and that's what I'm going to do".
