DiBartholomeo: "The games are more important, but we will come prepared" - voila! sport


The captain of Maccabi Tel Aviv is ready for Virtus Bologna (19:00) when a victory will bring the yellows closer to securing a place in the playoffs for the first time in a full season

Maccabi Tel Aviv will be able to get significantly closer to securing its place in the Euroleague playoffs, for the first time in a full season under the new system, when it hosts Virtus Bologna tonight (Tuesday, 19:00) at Menorah Hall.

The yellows, who are ranked sixth in the table with 17 wins and 13 losses, will not be able to officially secure their place among the last eight in the next round, but a win together with a win over Milan on Thursday at the Menorah Hall may be enough.

Close to the playoffs.

Maccabi Tel Aviv followed the Virtus Bologna flight that finally arrived at the scheduled time at Ben Gurion Airport from noon last night.

The team reminded the team's fans several times yesterday that today's game takes place at 19:00 and not at 21:05 as they do in the Euroleague games, due to the Israeli soccer team's game in Switzerland tonight.

Just like in the game against Villervan, Maccabi Tel Aviv is afraid that Bologna, coming after a home defeat to Real Madrid and with zero chance of advancing to the playoffs, will come loose and be a tough opponent.

"There is a professional interest in this game, but mainly mental elements in this type of game," said the club.

"We want to attack the offensive rebound every game, and we've worked very hard to improve the defensive rebound," said Jake Cohen, referring to his team's ability to fight for rebounds, "It's not something special for the upcoming game, it's something we want to be a part of Our DNA. These are the habits we try to build throughout the season, and we are in a positive direction."

"We got used to the schedule. The guys know how to control themselves, recover and be ready every day," added John DiBartholomew, who is in excellent form.

"As we progress, the games are more important because we have put ourselves in a position where we are fighting for our goals for this season. Not much has changed in terms of preparations this week, it is part of our job and we will come prepared."

"I think I played better this season compared to the previous two years, since I was absent for an extended period," Jondi said of his great personal ability, "There are many reasons for my good season, it starts with preparation, but it is especially the team and the coaches who give me confidence to play my game . I feel comfortable in the system alongside my teammates. I feel I have a role and I do it to the best of my abilities. I hope I can continue like this for the rest of the season."
