Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv dropped their record to 10-13 on the season after a 68:87 loss to AX Armani Exchange Milan in their return to the EuroLeague. After missing their last two European contests and shooting only 7 for 25 from behind the arc, Giannis Sfairopoulos's squad couldn't catch up to the third-ranked Messina's unit, who connected for 75% of their shots from inside the paint. 

Othello Hunter connected for 16 points and 9 boards, Tyler Dorsey provided 11 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds, as Chris Jones added 10 points. Scottie Wilbekin came into the contest with an injured right thumb and didn't return to the court after halftime. The Yellow & Blue's next challenge comes on Saturday as they are slated to return to the Israeli League facing Bnei Herzliya.



"I'd like to congratulate Milano and coach Messina for the win", said head coach Giannis Sfairopoulos at the postgame press conference. "They played really well from the tip-off until the final whistle, and we didn't find any solutions other than some moments in the game that we were able to reduce their lead to six points. Now we have fewer games till the end, but we will fight every game until the end".

About Wilbekin's rare performance: "Scottie injured his right-hand thumb in the last practice. We said he'd be questionable for the game, and he wasn't in the right condition to play tonight".



"Basketball is a game of runs, we made a couple of them, but that wasn't enough", added Chris Jones about the game. "We got to keep fighting as a team, continue to pick each other up and get better every day. There are still many more games to figure it, and I believe we can make a really big run. We need to continue to believe in ourselves and in what we are doing, and I think we will be ok".

"We didn't hit shots, they did, and we didn't come to fight as we showed during the last few practices", told Elijah Bryant, who later spoke about their next plans: "We will regroup, get back together and continue to fight until the end regardless of the results".
