Maccabi Tel Aviv is only one victory away from the 55th and fourth consecutive championship after last night (Tuesday) the Yellows defeated Hapoel Gilboa / Galil 74:83 in the first game in the final series of the 2020/21 season.

Yannis Sapropoulos' team will try to win the championship tomorrow (21:00) in Gan Ner and avoid a decisive game on Thursday at Menora Mivtachim Hall.



The Yellows came into the game very sharp, going up to a 4:15 lead in the opening, and in each quarter opening they created a double-digit difference.

In fact, in the first 5 minutes of each quarter, Maccabi led by a cumulative 18 points, but allowed Gilboa to return to the game time and time again, with the Reds approaching 4 points, but no more.



"They are a good team, you can not expect them to get punched and fall. Whenever they wanted we made good stops and managed to finish the game," said Chris Jones about their opponent not being broken and Ante Zizic also complimenting the Reds: " "They finished and they are motivated, no one will give up. We controlled the game from the first second. We stopped them in the passing game, the offensive rebound, but in two threes they know how to come back. In the whole game our advantage was promising, we did a good job."

Maccabi's hero in the game was Scotty Wilbkin. The guard who came into the game after a not good enough start to the playoffs scored only 7 points in bad percentages in the first half, but in the second half he took control of the game scoring 19 of his team's 41 points, mostly throwing to the basket and delivering one assist overall.



Wilbkin took the game personally, and at certain minutes had a trash talk with Joe Thomson of Gilboa. "What Thomason did not understand was that Scotty lived on these things," said one of Wilbkin's friends in yellow, "just give him the spark, expose yourself, and he will hit you."



Besides Wilbkin, Angelo Cloiaro recorded a great game with 16 points, including 4 threes, a record for him in the yellow uniform. Cloiaro recorded a good second game in the playoffs, after also excelling against Hapoel Beer Sheva away. "He's definitely been performing at his highest level lately," the teammates told the forward.



Cloiaro has a contract for another season at Maccabi, but until a few weeks ago it seemed that the team would strive to reach an agreement with him on agreed compensation and release when his name was even raised as a candidate to strengthen teams on the continent.

The ability has recently strengthened his position again, and various factors within the system are already saying that they will be surprised if he leaves.

"He's like a phoenix," said one of the team members, "every time you think he's over, he picks himself up again. Yannis dies on him, there's a good chance we'll see him continue."

Will they close the series out?

Despite the advantage in the series, Maccabi Tel Aviv is in no hurry to celebrate a championship and knows that in the previous two series they had a very hard time in the second game until they achieved a victory by only one point. "We can close it on Wednesday, we play pretty well. We have to come in the next game like in this game," said Ante Žižić, "be focused from the start, play stronger than them, that's the only way you can beat them. It's style "Different of a game, the final is different. We lost to them during the season but now it is different, we are 100 percent ready for the game, it is completely different."



Chris Jones added: "We know it will be a tough game away, but I will buy the result from the second game in the previous two series. We need to do a better job on the defensive rebound, help each other, we did a good job keeping the ball, if we do the It's also in the next game, we give ourselves a good chance to win the game. "



One of the team members added: "We know that Gilboa will attack us from the opening. We will have to be focused and focused and we will be able to celebrate as early as Wednesday night."



Maccabi will hold a training session this afternoon in the home arena and then leave for a hotel in the north of the country, where they will hold a shooting practice in Gan Ner on the morning of the game.
