Maccabi Tel Aviv recovered from Thursday's loss to Real Madrid and defeated Alba Berlin 81-102 in the 11th round of the Euroleague. Maccabi Tel Aviv easily managed to close the table, despite the absence of John DiBartolomeo (injured) and Josh Nivo (sick).

48 hours after the best team in the Euroleague landed at the Pioneer Arena in Belgrade, this time the weakest team in the factory arrived (10:1) and Maccabi took full advantage of this to get back on the winning track, after 3 losses in its last 4 games - and rise again to a positive record (5:6). Wade Baldwin bounced back after a weak period and, despite some uncommitted errors, finished with 18 points. Bonzi Coulson and Rafi Manko also excelled.
Beyond the victory itself, Maccabi Tel Aviv cannot take much away from this game, because it met a really weak opponent, who also arrived with a missing squad without some of its main players. Oded Ketch can be pleased with the confidence that has returned a bit to his players ahead of next week's pair of away games against Villeurbanne and Virtus Bologna.
