The Rami Hadar era has gotten off to a great start as the newly minted head coach has recorded two Euroleague victories in two games the second coming away in Lithuania. Andrew Goudelock scored 20 points leading five Yellow & Blue players in double digits. Devin Smith (17pts), Sonny Weems (16pts) and DJ Seely with 11 points helped Maccabi to the win.
However, behind the victory are still some very worrying statistics staring with giving up 33 three-point opportunities to Zalgiris. The other problem is still the Israeli issue with 7 points in 38 minutes and Gal Mekel again putting up a goose egg in ten minutes.
But one can’t fault the new main man Hadar as he’s had no time to work with his crew as he continues his busy schedule with a Tel Aviv Derby at Hapoel and Barcelona on Wednesday.
