If you watch the last four games we are finding more open shots, we are improving our spacing and we are playing with more confidence. We are starting to enjoy, and when a team starts to enjoy it’s the moment when a team becomes dangerous“, Plaza said.

Every victory is a very special. Tonight’s victory is special because the people are remembering this Hollywood’s games. Everyone is very motivated to play in Tel Aviv, me first. We won few games in a row in the Euroleague and we are starting to enjoy playing together while we are giving a great effort. This is a very special win, but we can’t forget the wins against Khimki, Barcelona and Milano“, the Spaniard added.

On the other side, coach Neven Spahija wasn’t satisfied with the way Maccabi‘s starting line up performed. “I would like to congrats to Unicaja. They were the better team tonight, they know what they wanted. We knew they are the great offensive rebounding team, but we didn’t stop that as they had 16 offensive boards. Our starting unit, a unit that brought us a  victory last week wasn’t on a right level tonight. Honestly, our second unit played much better tonight”.

“A mental toughness is something a repeat often and it looks that’s our biggest problem right now”, Spahija said.
