Fenerbahce left Tel Aviv with the victory, after beating Maccabi 75-65 and returning to success in the best way.
The game was ambiguous throughout with both teams giving a lot of weight to their defensive duties by choosing a slower pace in the attack.
The rise of Nanto DeColo in combination with the low percentages of the players of Giannis Sfeiropoulos brought the guests to +8 (54-62, 32 ‘). Maccabi Tel Aviv tried to react, but did so in an unorthodox manner and many hasty shots.
On the other hand, the players of Igor Kokoskov remained calm, and with 5 consecutive points of Bobby Dixon, they found themselves leading 58-69 (37 ‘).
The ten minutes: 22-18, 38-35, 54-56, 65-75
