1. Last night (Thursday), Maccabi Tel Aviv recorded a very significant victory in its Euroleague season when they defeated Real Madrid 84:86 by Yad Eliyahu.

The victory broke a streak of six consecutive losses for the Yellows in meetings against Real.

Thanks to the victory, the team of Yannis Sapropoulos went up to a balance of 11:10 and came closer to a team that is currently making up the Euroleague playoffs.



Real were passionate in the first quarter, scoring 33 points and already leading by a double-digit margin, before the bench led by Tyler Dorsey - who recorded his Euroleague record with 30 points - brought Maccabi Tel Aviv back into the game.

The second half was close and the host managed to catch the lead at the end and could have finished the game more easily if not for a streak of penalty errors in the closing seconds that almost cost her in the match.

Aside from Dorsey, only Othello Hunter scored in double digits for the Yellows with 11 points in 18 minutes.



"We knew Real were a team that scored a good 2 percent, and that's how they opened the gap," said game star Dorsey at the end. "We improved defensively and faced their defensive presence. I took what the defense gave me, and we had a good game from the moment we improved the defense. Ours from the start of the game. "

On the work the team did against one of the best players in the Euroleague, Eddie Tavares, Dorsey said: "Tavares saves and moves well, but we knew we had to get to the transition game and get him to defend the pick-and-roll game. We did well throughout the game, "We are at our best when we play fast."



John DiBottolomeo added: "We are in a good direction, beating Real Madrid is always difficult and we are happy we were able to win. We made them feel comfortable, they did what they wanted, the balls went in for them and they came out on the blocks easily. When your aggression is not there, it "It doesn't matter. We changed it. It helped us when we started scoring shots and it fed us the energy, but we need to start better defensively."

2. As mentioned, this was Tyler Dorsey's evening.

For the third time this season, the Yellows' guard managed to score over 25 points, with his season mainly characterized by ups and downs.

Dorsey scored in nine games in double digits and in 11 less than 10 points.

In six games he scored 28 threes, and in 14 more just 11.



"We had a long week until this game, I came every morning to work and study, it's a result of my work. At every opportunity I get on the field, I have to do my job. Can I may get fewer minutes in the next game, but I will have to be more stable, "said the American guard, adding about the collaboration with Wilbkin who coordinated the game, delivered 8 assists and took only 5 shots," I do not control it, the coach makes the decisions, and I have to "Be ready to play in the minutes I get. Besides, I do not control these things. I do not know if there is a formula that says that when I score a lot, Maccabi wins, it is not a question I have to answer."



At Maccabi Tel Aviv we were very proud of Dorsey and one of the team members said: "There is no doubt that this is his best game here, and it is the best game of one player this season with us. Tyler did everything from everything. You do not notice, but he is only 24, he has potential to turn For a superstar at the highest levels, he could be there in a year or two. "

Alongside Dorsey, Scotty Wilbkin continued to be solid, and Maccabi Tel Aviv continued to enjoy his fruits in this role.

Maccabi Tel Aviv has won six of the last nine games in which Wilbkin scored 10 points and 5.3 assists per game, including less than two threes per game by 33 percent.

In the three losses?

22.6 points, 3 assists with 2.6 threes at 24 percent.



Before the game, Yannis Sapropoulos said that Wilbkin is the leader of the Yellows, but he supports team play, and Narara that the guard does go in the team direction, and at the end of the game when he tried to take responsibility, he missed a critical free throw, like a week and a half ago against Olympiacos.

Only this time it did not cost the team in the game.



"We trust Scotty with his eyes closed, he's doing what's good for the team," said one of the Yellows' teammates. "If he feels it's an evening he needs to take the game and throw 20 shots and score 30 points, that's what he's going to do. "See Tyler is hot, Elijah is hot, Sussman is hot, and he needs to pull fire and give them their evening, so that's what he does. It's part of being the leader of the team."

"Playing against Real Madrid is something special, especially where I came from."

4. Apart from Dorsey's evening, some complementary players recorded a very good game for Maccabi, especially John DiButtolomeo who scored 7 points in 13 minutes, and seems to be slowly finding himself back in the team.

Oz Blazer gave some excellent minutes in the second quarter, as did Chris Jones, and Yuval Sussman was good defensively, even though the offense returned to Soro without points.



"Our second quarter was good. We had a hard time at first. Playing against Real Madrid is something special, especially where I came from, getting from a low level in college, and playing against historic teams, we try not to think about it during, but only after the game. We started playing defense. "Good in the second quarter and we managed to get back into the game," said Dibertolomeo. "Every time we play there are very good games. Playing in these meetings is something special."

The deal will be completed in the coming days.

5. The coming week is expected to be especially busy for the Yellows.

It will start on Saturday (18:15, Sport 5) in a league game against Gilboa / Galil, the eighth game out of 24 games in the regular season for the Yellows, which in the near future will have to complete quite a few games in the local framework.

On Monday, Maccabi Tel Aviv will take off for Istanbul ahead of the game against Fenerbahce, which is fighting with them in the playoffs and defeated them by Yad Eliyahu, and on Thursday it will complete a Turkish week when it hosts Anadolu Zero.



Maccabi Tel Aviv really want to record a three-game winning streak for the first time this season in the Euroleague, but Yannis Sapropoulos said last night that: "We have less than 48 hours to prepare for the game against Galil, and my thought is only about this game. I do not think beyond."

Today, the group knew whether Omri Caspi would be able to take part in the upcoming match.



The deal to join TJ Klein is expected to be completed in the coming days.
