Maccabi from Tel Aviv also forces fifth against Monaco

He Maccabi defeated the Monaco in Tel Aviv with authority (104-69) and forced the fifth game of a Euroleague quarterfinal tie that will have to be decided in the Principality next Wednesday, where the winner will get a ticket to the Final Four of the maximum continental competition.

Once again overcoming the deafening atmosphere of the Menora Mivtachim Arena, which vibrated with the previous tribute to its legendary coach David Blatt, and confident in the victory obtained on Tuesday on the same stage, the players coached by Sasa Obradovic once again went out for all and they took control of the first quarter, which put the Israelis on the ropes, who were forced to win to extend the series (17-24, min 10).

The panorama changed after the first pause. Spurred on by their fans, the locals put together a great second act, in which they were able to score thirty points and seal their defense, which halved the rival’s production compared to the first ten minutes. The rest was reached with the Maccabees eleven up and with the game on track (47-36).

Lorenzo Brown and Wade Baldwin provided the points for a team that also dominated the rebounds and the script was repeated in the third quarter with a dominating Maccabi and a Monaco who couldn’t get into the game and who was weighed down excessively by their foul of success from the perimeter and that he was only able to score three of the nineteen triples he attempted (15%).

In the last ten minutes everything was decided (79-53) although Maccabi continued to play at will until the final 104-69. On Wednesday the tie will be decided on Monegasque ground.
