Maccabi Tel Aviv's dismal away game record has been preserved.
The Yellows lost tonight (Thursday) in Belgrade to the Red Star 69:68 and they are still winless this season and it is clear that something bad happens to Maccabi when they leave their home hall.
On the other hand, the Red Star with a third consecutive victory since Dusko Ivanovich was appointed as coach.
It is true that Maccabi had a chance to win the game, it is true that they made a nice comeback at the end, but in the end, even against an inferior opponent, they are unable to mark a V outside the Menora Mivathim Hall.
If the previous away games, Maccabi missed in defense, this game they lost in attack.
Maccabi did not reach 70 and scored five three-pointers in the entire game at only 22 percent.
Next to Lorenzo Brown who was excellent, one more guard was missing to step up.
The problem was that there wasn't one, especially on an evening when Wade Baldwin wasn't in business.
Maccabi lost to a limited attack team, which during the game had 10 minutes without a field goal.
The point is that the host eventually managed to dictate her style and pace which, as mentioned, prevented Maccabi's attack from coming to light.

The game was even throughout, with the locals leading by small margins.
Three minutes to the end, the host went up to 60:68.
Ketch responded during the move with the formation of four guards.
It worked and Maccabi reached the last ball to win the game, but did not take advantage of the opportunity.
At first it was Wade Baldwin who lost the ball.
The Red Star lost by itself and Maccabi had 9 seconds but it was slow and did not get the winning basket.
Lorenzo Brown finished with 23 points and Roman Sorkin also had a good game again with 16 points.
The problem was that they didn't have offensive partners and Baldwin especially stood out in his weakness as mentioned above with only 6 points and 6 turnovers.
