Basketball Bundesliga team Alba Berlin started the new season with a defeat. At the start of the Euroleague, the Berliners lost to the Israeli top team Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv after a good start with 73:80 (41:49). Since there is currently a lockdown in Israel due to the corona pandemic, the game took place without a spectator. The best throwers from Berlin were Marcus Eriksson with 18 and Simone Fontecchio with 16 points.
coach Aito Garcia Reneses was able to compete with the best line-up. And the Berliners got off to a very good start. Because they immediately found their throwing rhythm. Eriksson and newcomer Fontecchio in particular were on target in the first quarter. Since the defense also worked, Alba pulled away to 31:19 at the beginning of the second quarter.
The teams available to Jose as he heads into Spurs' congested schedule
Tonight's game against Frank Lampard's men comes just two days before Spurs host Maccabi Haifa in a Europa League play-off qualifier, which is being considered as a must-win match for Spurs.You don't have to look that far back to find Mourinho bemoaning the organisation of the football calendar, but this year, he certainly has a point.
But then Maccabi woke up and then hit back with a 25-2 run. The Berliners did not hit many open litters. Maccabi also defended more intensely and hardly allowed any easy throwing positions. Alba, on the other hand, lost access defensively. At times the Alba defense fell completely apart. They especially couldn't cope with the athleticism of the hosts.
However, the Berliners caught up again and fought their way back to two points after the break (47:49). The guests acted at eye level again. However, they failed to take the lead again several times. Alba had problems especially under the basket and too often gave Maccabi a second chance. In the final quarter, the Berliners tried everything again, but in the end gave too many litters to cause a surprise.
