Former Othello Hunter: "Maccabi Tel Aviv looks really good"


His coach,

Oded Ketch

, took responsibility for the significant drop in ability in the last quarter, during which Holon was already in the midst of a 14:32 run: "It may also be a little bit my fault, I take responsibility for this matter, but we calmed down a bit at the end of the game. All in all, we had a lot of minutes Good against a good team that knows what it's doing. I think we got out of our attacking rhythm because it was important that the game was already over, but that must not happen."

At the press conference at the end, Ketch added: "We had a good game, maybe our best so far if we refer to the first three quarters. There was fatigue of some players, Lorenzo added a lot to us and I liked the combination of him and Wade together. We played good basketball for three quarters, we also kept , offensively we also played correctly. Looking ahead, another game to improve and learn and become better."

Ketch also referred to Brown in the closing words: "Lorenzo is back from the European Championship, he is in good shape and in good physical shape. He is another coordinator on the field, a real coordinator, he provided 12 assists, not necessarily complicated passes, simplifies the game. This helps Wade, so far he is Was the only ball carrier and a lot was on him, it will help both of them to play together. A good center with decision making, we need two or three of them if not more, that's what he added to us, that quality. Poithers also puts a lot on the field. He is a much better finisher From what we saw today. This is the way we want to play. I really hope we will be dominant in rebounding, it is a key component in victories. A team built with ten new players, there is no possibility that it will play its best basketball soon, but I want to see improvement."

On the other hand, the defeated coach Guy Goodes claimed: "The many ball turnovers accompany us in all the practice games we played and once we sort it out and the returning balls in defense, I believe it will be fine. We showed the character of a team that does not break because the game could have gone to the final with a 30-point difference and it became For a four-man game, but players play a lot of minutes until another guard arrives to help, so we're in a bit of a difficult situation."

Another coach of the champion coach: "The new foreigner only arrives tomorrow, and will practice, you can't build too much on him for a game like this. It will fall on Joe and Niv, at this stage, hopefully we will be strong and determined enough to pull out victories this week. It was easy for us to play games Training against teams in Israel, I am still determined and think that it is necessary to play against quality teams like Olympiakos, and also Maccabi, which is a Euroleague team, this is the best possible preparation for the moment of truth. I hope we learned something in these two weeks, a little about us, each about himself and each about his friend." .
