Maccabi Tel Aviv will continue its Euroleague season tonight (Thursday, 21:30) in an away game against Alba Berlin.

The Yellows, armed with almost a thousand spectators who are supposed to give a homely atmosphere outside Israel as well, come to the game after the loss to Olympiacos, but still with an excellent balance of seven wins and four losses.



On the other hand, the home team is one of the weakest in the factory with only three victories so far, and will present its pair of Israelis, Yuval Sussman and Tamir Blatt.

"A lot of guys in the group trust me to do different things. I have no complaints at all."

In a few words:

Maccabi Tel Aviv arrived in Berlin in the evening after an unusual day for them that included a concluding training session in the Midtown hall in the city center. The Israeli champion will today hold the final training ahead of the game and will undergo another video tutorial ahead of Alba, after two such events have already taken place in recent days.



The feeling among the people of Maccabi Tel Aviv is that the game depends on them much more than it depends on Alba, and if they reach a high level of performance, and maintain concentration, they should leave Berlin with the victory. On the professional side, Maccabi Tel Aviv will try to avoid losing balls that will put Alba in the transition game. In addition the Yellows will try not to let the home team get into a rhythm outside the arc of the three.



The team talked about picantry in a meeting with Yuval Sussman and Tamir Blatt briefly when one of the club members said at night: "It would be nice to see Zos on the floor in Berlin. We follow him and wish him a lot of success. We would like to beat him and congratulate him for the rest of the season."

"We want to stay focused."

"We want to stay focused," Cameron Taylor said when asked what the keys are to the game against Alba. For the last second, both defensively and offensively. "

Taylor added and referred to the hundreds of Maccabi Tel Aviv fans who are expected to be present in the stands: "It's always nice to have Maccabi Tel Aviv fans in the stands, it definitely gives you extra energy."



Derek Williams said: "In the previous game we chased from the start, but in the next three quarters we played pretty well. We want to take the end of the previous game and bring it to this game. We know Elba is a good team when she feels comfortable, so we want to come make it difficult "Making easy baskets. The coach gives me a lot of freedom to be myself and do a lot of different things on the floor. That's what makes me be me - to do a variety of things in play, defense and offense. A lot of guys on the team trust me to do different things. I have no complaints at all."

In the center of the contest:

Keenan Evans. Quietly Quietly the guard who got into things with Maccabi Tel Aviv again came out of them with less than 6 points on average in the last three games, even though he maintains a good pace of over 4 assists per game in recent times. Maccabi Tel Aviv will have to take some of the load off Scotty Wilbkin and Evans is the man who is supposed to do it.



The data:

14 games were played between the two teams in the Euroleague, and the balance is 1:13 very flattering in favor of Maccabi Tel Aviv. Alba's only victory came at Yad Eliyahu in February 2015, and in the home court Maccabi Tel Aviv won all seven of its visits.



Yuval Sussman spent 79 Euroleague games for Maccabi Tel Aviv, but in the meantime he is recording his best numbers in his Euroleague career in Alba, unsurprisingly. Despite this, Sussman has not yet managed to shatter any of his Euroleague records from the period at Maccabi Tel Aviv, with all the records set by December 2019.



Ante Žižić started the current season great as he is ranked sixth in the Euroleague index table with an average of 17.3, and fifth in the offensive rebound with 2.7 rebounds per evening.

One of the most impressive players in Alba.

After five straight games in double digits, and with an average of 16.2 points during that time, Derek Williams calmed down and averaged 5.5 points in his last two games.

Williams still leads Maccabi Tel Aviv with 45.5 percent off the arc.



Cameron Taylor gets a lot of credit from Mianis Sapropoulos because of his defensive play, because on offense it's far from being that.

The forward averages 2.6 points per game with 14 percent off the arc and 40 percent from the penalty line.



Rival:

For Maccabi Tel Aviv fans and Israeli basketball fans Alba Berlin is Yuval Sussman and Tamir Blatt, but the German team, which is nominated for the weakest title in the Euroleague, is much more than that.

Alba underwent a change on the lines this summer when Israel Gonzalez replaced Aito Rances, but even that change did not lead to results.

Alba has only three wins from 11 games, when apart from the big surprise against Fenerbahce in the third round, it has only won teams that are close to it in the table.

Only eight players played in all of the games, with three of them scoring in double digits.

The one who recently returned to the team and looks good is the Swedish guard-forward Marcus Erickson with 10.6 points per game.



Note: Oscar de Silva.

The German forward played four great years at Stanford and last season finished excellently at Ludwigsburg.

The success led him to Alba Berlin, and at 2.05 meters he is one of the most effective players on the team with 12.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per game, including 69 percent for 2 points.
