Tonight (Thursday, 21:00), Maccabi Tel Aviv will have a second chance to win the 55th championship in its history when it hosts Gilboa / Galil for the third and decisive game in the playoff final series for the 2020/21 season. The Yellows missed the first opportunity to close out the series with an away loss last night at Candle Garden 81:76, and less than 24 hours later they will line up for the final game of the season. As of the early hours of the morning, there were only about 200 tickets left for the Yellows fans who pounced on the tickets at the end of the second game, knocking down the club's website several times.



The team came out disappointed with the loss in Gan Ner, but broadcast that despite the disappointment they are completely focused in the third game. Last night, Maccabi Tel Aviv had a hard time assessing whether chin Ante Zizic will be able to participate in the game, when the club said that the player has a great desire to play despite the pain in his back. Zizic felt pain before the start of the second game last night, and came up to play with a shot. "He will undergo treatments today, hopefully everything will be fine," the group said during the night.



"It's a strange situation to play day after day. We haven't played like this before, I don't know how to do the video and the preparations. The two teams know each other well. The details will be important," said John DiBattolomio ahead of the game.



Apart from the loss of the championship in 2016, all the other championships that it dropped since 2008, Maccabi Tel Aviv lost to Yad Eliyahu, and the club knows that the clear advantage that will be in the stands tonight does not guarantee them anything.

"Our crowd will do the job and push us, but at the moment in the current state of affairs, our professional advantage over Gilboa / Galil is insignificant and the momentum after the victory with them," admitted the champion, "there are no favorites in this game."

Last night's loss at Gan Ner was dramatic, but the game was under the control of the home team.

Gilboa started the game very strongly, gaining a 4:16 advantage in the opening, and 16:30 at the end of the first quarter, with Yannis Sapropoulos using his two timeouts already in the first part of the game.

The Yellows looked better from this stage, took over a lot of rebounds on offense, but scored an appalling percentage to 2 points, only 24.4 percent, a negative club record and a negative playoff record for any team in Israel.



The one who held Maccabi Tel Aviv with his head above water was Scotty Wilbkin who scored 34 points, his record for a game without extra time in Israel.

Wilbkin managed to balance the result to 74:74, 2 minutes to the end of the game, but then Joe Thomasson and Yiftach Ziv in two big baskets, and Ziv with a great block on Wilbkin, gave Gilboa the victory.



"We started the game badly, we missed good shots and they scored their shots, got momentum and lit up their crowd," said captain John Dibertolomeo. "I have no excuse for how we scored 2 points, we need to be more focused to finish the moves. "We have one more game to make up for it. It's always disappointing to lose. We fought back and forth, we had a chance to win the game despite our weak shooting ability. I'm not happy with how we looked."



The captain told what the team was missing at the end of the game: "We needed a stop, in these playoff games, it falls on details, one move or another, we could not make the last stop. They made great moves at the end of the game. They deserve credit, we have more One game in our house to take the championship, "said the captain.



Dibertolomeo referred to the poor ability of the Yellows' chins, and to Zizic's injury: "We had a hard time finishing moves, scoring such a percentage to 2 points. Ante and Othello arranged a lot of second chances for us, TJ gave us important minutes, there are We have a deep team and we need players to rise. "

Terrible percentages for 2 points of the champion.

Simultaneously with the game it was announced in Spain that Barcelona have turned to Chris Jones for next season.

Maccabi Tel Aviv has an option on Jones until the end of the current month, but in light of the fact that Keenan Evans is expected to join, it seems that Jones' path in the yellow is about to end but he should remain in the Euroleague.



Maccabi Tel Aviv did not like the date of publication of the news when one of the club members said: "Chris gives himself 100 percent to try and close the season with a championship. We really try to keep quiet until the end of the season, and anything like that only causes a certain unrest. He is a professional and we He is confident that he will meet the complex task he has tonight. "
