One of those responsible for the yellow turnaround was

Jaylen Reynolds

, who excelled on the defensive side and also in the offense recorded an excellent game in which he scored 22 points. After a season at Bayern Munich, the new-old player in yellow admitted: "I love this country, this crowd and the atmosphere. I feel like I'm back home."



Reynolds also commented on the Yellows' season opener and turnaround on the way to the final: "We knew how important this game was, we know Jerusalem and know how hard the games against them are. We stuck to the game plan and things are progressing well.



Maccabi Tel Aviv coach,

Yannis Sapropoulos

Experiencing not easy preparation for the season to say the least, said of the game: "It's not just the last quarter where we managed to kill the game. Our defense in the second half was good because they scored 25 points compared to 40 in the first. Except the first quarter, we played well on defense and that "We won the game. We have a very talented team and many players can score 20-25 points on a given day, but our key to success is the defensive game. They could not continue to score in such percentages."

Will be checked today.

Sapropolos also praised Reynolds' ability: "I am very pleased with him. We knew how talented he is and he is an excellent defensive player. This is just the beginning and he will get better. Our seniors played very well, Roman also played very well and Oz fought in position 4, also C. We have a lot of options and I have a lot of solutions. It was Derek's first game. For me the important thing is that I have options, and secondly each of them is willing to learn about how we want to play. We have seven new players. I could list some of the three who did not play against "First also in the previous game. They are not ready yet. They are not fit anymore, we could not not let them play, we wanted to win this game, but that's how we build our team. This is our third game and these three players needed playing time."



As for Yiftach Ziv, who injured his ankle, went down for treatments and did not return to the floor, he will be examined later in the evening and only then will the severity of the injury become clear.

The celebration ended too soon for the Reds.

On the losing side, coach

Oren Amiel

said of the yellow turnaround: "This is a great lesson in how to maintain stability, this is the best way to learn. How hard we had, this is the way. We have players their qualities, we are still in the learning process, we need to learn each what he likes. no one said it would be easy for us.



the ability of Anthony Bennett

: I do not think he should be player specific. we have our thoughts on who should play. I think the team at the moment given all make mistakes and I part From the mistakes.This is what I thought at that moment to do.We had more good minutes than the previous games, we met with an intensity we have not met until now.In many parts of the game we dealt with it.I see our progress, it's hard to see it after the game.I look at things The positives.
