Keep a chance.

Maccabi Tel Aviv were satisfied tonight (Thursday) after the team managed to break the losing streak and beat Valencia 72:84.

In doing so, the Yellows maintained a slim chance of taking eighth place at the end of the regular season in the Euroleague, which leads to the playoff quarterfinal series.

Omri Caspi was very good in the winning ranks, when Tyler Dorsey came up great from the bench and led the team scores of Yannis Sapropoulos with 17 points.

Valencia enjoyed 18 points from Louis Lavieri but failed to threaten the yellow victory.

He said at the end: "We fought very hard. Everyone who came to play gave the maximum. It was important how we started the game because our defense was very good, they scored 72 points and they are number 2 in the Euroleague in points per game. Stopping them on 72 points means we played good defense We were under pressure in the first half and missed free throws and free throws, but in the second half we hardened the defense, stopped their attacking rebounds, and they only took 2 rebounds on offense in the second half. We scored 51 points in the second half. We will continue to fight to the end, "The 300 fans who were here were impressive, they are a force and they support the team, I want to thank them, we will fight to the end and I hope to see more of them in the coming weeks."

On the fact that Wilbkin barely played in the second half and took only one shot: "I try to use all the players, and I saw who the players are at the better pace, and I went with them. I wanted to play with the players who are more fit, and that's why I let those players play. "And he responds quickly to what he can do on offense, he helps under the basket and he was very good."



On Omri Caspi's good game: "Everyone understands how big Omri's disadvantage was. His injury and his illness that disrupted him affected our rotation, he has quality and experience, it is very important that he continues like this. I believe in our staff and our players, I do not believe that during "This season we can bring in better players than we have, because the good players have a contract."

: "We fought well in this game, but we lost the fight on the rebound, it changed the game and they controlled the pace. We tried to fight, play physically, the game was very physical, but we lost in this fight. We made Maccabi feel too comfortable. We are already nine "Days away from home. We need everyone's energies, especially since we're suffering from an injury problem. Mike Toby has been playing the last few games for too few minutes and saw it today with his offense problem as well."
