"We are ready to fight tomorrow," Yannis Sapropoulos declared in the run-up to the game. "We have to keep fighting.

Our opponent has a lot of good players who can score at a high pace.

They score a lot of points per game, and compared to the previous game we need to be more stable.

We need to get organized properly. "



On the minimal chances left for the playoffs, the coach said:" I fight for everything in my life, that's my character and that's what I intend to do even now, no matter what our situation in the table.

We intend to fight to the end.

In the last game we managed to make a comeback, but we have to learn from our mistakes.

Our challenge is to face the difficulties we have now.



"" We have to go back forever.

When you are in a big club like Maccabi Tel Aviv, you have to make every effort to win every game.

We are still playing in the Euroleague this season, and after the season is over we will analyze what did not work properly.

In the end, in previous seasons we relied on a very homely hall, and this year there is no audience.

It changes everything. "



Sapropoulos analyzed the Yellows' problems." Some of our players are exhausted.

Some went through a very long season last season, playing while the Corona risked their lives.

Half of our team has been playing for two years now, with a three-week break.

It's not normal.

Other groups had different conditions.

Milan started training in early July, for example, and had two months to train before the start of the season.

We did not have the same opening conditions as other teams in the Euroleague. "
