As Barcelona prepares for Maccabi Tel Aviv, The Sports Rabbi had a chance to speak exclusively to coach Svetislav Pešić about their upcoming contest:

“We have big respect for Maccabi and they are a team that had just won six games in a row and played an excellent game in Milano which is a very difficult place to win.”

The keys to the Yellow & Blue’s success is far this season, “Maccabi is the top rebounding and 2 point percentage shot team which means they have a very good fast break, they are very athletic and they are very balanced on both their outside and inside game.”

Style of basketball: “Maccabi play very modern basketball with of without Scottie Wilbekin and Nate Wolters is an excellent point guard that they didn’t have last season. Plus they have a couple of NBA players which means they are a complete team.”
