In contrast to the first game, then managed to escape only in the last quarter, in the second game Maccabi dominated from the middle of the first quarter, increased the difference to 14 in the half and increased it to 17 in the third quarter, but then Hapoel responded, reduced to 3, near the end and almost managed to reverse the match. , But no more than that.

"I'm part of the team, the most important thing was a win and not looking at other things. Glad I made a good game and we won," Sorkin said at the end of the game. "I'm glad I'm helping the team. From the beginning of the season I tried to progress a bit, I came from Haifa, I reached a higher level, I try to learn every day. Glad we won."



Sorkin was asked about his performance in position number 5 after Anta Žižić was absent from the series: "Ante was out and I had to play more in position number 5, all year I was between 4 and 5, this is my position in the end. Here it suits me better "Playing in position number 5, it helps the team I play in that position, can make a roll faster because they keep Scotty strong."



At Maccabi, we praised Sorkin's ability.
