Angelo Caloiaro led Maccabi with 18 points, six rebounds and six assists. Scottie Wilbekin had 16 points and Ante Zizic added 11 points plus seven rebounds. The “Yellows” played without Omri Casspi and Yovel Zoosman.

Hapoel had a 12 – 3 start in the game but Maccabi reacted quickly to grab a lead. Haifa was persistent until a 3-pointer by newcomer Chris Jones down the stretch sealed the win for Maccabi.
