A loss to Wheelerban may lead to changes in Maccabi Tel Aviv

Yannis Sapropoulos' team will be hosted in France (21:00) for a game that the team defines as "almost critical", in which discrimination could have consequences for the staff.

Cloiaro: "If we continue the second half in Milan, we have a good chance."

And also: the return of Chris Jones and the weak foreign balance

The Euroleague season of Maccabi Tel Aviv will continue tonight (Thursday, 21:00) in France when the Yellows will be hosted by Wheelerban. Maccabi comes to the game in Astroball with a balance of two losses and one victory, while their opponent is tied for points at the top of the table with three wins from three games.



In a few words:

"almost critical", this is how Maccabi Tel Aviv defines tonight's game. The Yellows come in the mentality of a season game to avoid a negative snowball. After the very bad game and a half against the red star Belgrade and Milan, the team knows that the same ability in France will lead to a loss and last night the club did not rule out that the continuation of this ability will lead to a certain change in the team.



The Yellows arrived yesterday afternoon on a flight to France, and held the concluding training session at Astroball in the evening.

Today they will hold another training and video tutorial when the main focus of the professional team will be clear - to control the pace and prevent Wheelerban from reaching the fast pace they like.

Maccabi refused to deal with the issue of Chris Jones yesterday, who was released from the summer club and has meanwhile excelled at Wheelerban, and treats the French rival as a whole.



"We have to learn from the game against Milan. The first half was terrible, and the second half was more similar to how we want to play. If we play like in the second half we have a very good chance," said Angelo Cloiaro ahead of the game.

Focus:

Keenan Evans. 3.3 points per game So far, the American guard who replaces Chris Jones is far from meeting expectations or providing numbers that will help Maccabi Tel Aviv achieve something in this European season. Evans will have to deliver a much better game in France.



The data:

Maccabi Tel Aviv has only one away win in its last eight away games in the Euroleague. On January 7, Maccabi defeated Alba Berlin in Germany, creating a streak of three victories outside Elijah, and since then has defeated only Zalgiris Kaunas in Lithuania, losing to Fenerbahce, Milan (times), Bayern Munich, Panathinaikos, the Red Star Belgrade And Zenith St. Petersburg.



63.3 points in the combined index is recorded by Maccabi Tel Aviv on average this season and it is ranked last in the Euroleague, with only Bayern Munich and Zalgiris Kaunas in its area.

How bad is it?

Four teams in the last decade in the Euroleague have achieved a worse average index over the course of a season - Olympia Ljubljana (52.8) and Procom Gdynia (53.9) in the 2011/12 season, Ritas Vilnius (59.8) in the 2012/13 season and Nanterre (61.5) in the 2013/14 season.



9 points in 35 seconds Angelo Cloiaro scored in the second quarter against the Red Star Belgrade, contributing 12 index points.

His numbers other than those 35 seconds?

Two points, 1 from 5 to 2 points, 0 from 4 to 3 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 turnovers and 2 index points in total and all in 78 minutes and 28 seconds.

Rival:

Wheelerban was named earlier this year as a team not expected to compete in the playoffs after the departure of several key players, led by Gershon Yavosla to Real Madrid.

But the French put up a typical underdog group with no big names.

If in the first two rounds it received two rivals by invitation - Zalgiris Kaunas and Alba Berlin, probably the two weakest in the Euroleague on paper, the victory in the big comeback over Andulo Zero has already preyed on the cards.



Only two players score in double digits at Wheelerban - Chris Jones of course with 18 points and Eli Okubo with 14.3 points per game.

But the contribution of Will Howard and Costes Antecompo, the brother of, with 8 and 8.3 points respectively and Paul Lacombe with 7.3 points of his own, makes TJ Parker's bunch very balanced.

Note:

Dylan Ostkowski.

Last season, the chin burst in the hall uniform with 17.9 points per game and received the much-needed upgrade to Villarban.

In the first two games of the season, the Big Man, who often throws from the outside, scored 2.5 points in a game with one field goal.

Against Andulo Zero he has already got almost 33 minutes and returned with 10 points.
