1. Much disappointment in Maccabi Tel Aviv after the loss last night (Thursday) 80:68 to Bayern Munich. The Yellows know they may regret the loss that could have critical implications at the end of the season.
"We played a bad game and we were not focused," said disappointed Janis Spropoulos after the game. The second we played good defense, in all the other districts of Bayern was better, dominated the game and won justly. We have to learn from that loss and play better in the next games. "
Aron Jackson, who has provided his best game since arriving, tried to calm down: "It was an important game that escaped our hands. It is a game that has something to learn from. I was in good and experienced teams, and you sometimes need such losses to learn and improve."

2. Everyone talks about the shortcomings of Tariq Black, Nate Walters and Omri Caspi, but Yuval Sussman's injury has just as much impact, and some will say even more. When he needed a defensive stopper yesterday to stop Petri Kuponen's triads or Nihad Jedovich doing whatever he could, there was no one to do it.
Janis Spropoulos tried to put Angelo Cloyaru into the role, but that's not it. Not in the sizing, not in the defensive game and especially not in the position on the field. How a professional asked me: "Who's going to stop Rudy Fernandes (if he comes) next week?"

3. One of the only ones to come to work yesterday, too, and basically all the time, is Othello Hunter. The 33-year-old chin was injured during the first half and went down to the locker room suffering from dizziness and nausea, but returned to play. Hunter may get a rest in the derby on Sunday to qualify and fresh for next Thursday's game against Real Madrid.
Amara Stodmeyer will land in Israel during lunch, and his chances of taking part in the Tel Aviv derby are not high. The former NBC star has been training and keeping fit for the last period, but has not played or coached in a team for over a month and a half. On Saturday, Stodmeyer will conduct his first training in the yellow uniform and only afterwards will the professional staff know when he can be part of the roster. It is estimated that his debut game will be against Real.

4. As we wrote last night, no less than 14 scouts attended the Audi Doom stands in part to watch Dani Abadia, but were certainly disappointed when the young talents got a little over 4 minutes and didn't score even one point.
More scouts are also expected to arrive, one of which will be the Denver Nuggets international scout who will surely take the opportunity to see in one game Abdiya and the Madar Sea which is strong in the 2021 Draft predictions.
