Maccabi Tel Aviv registered its second straight BSL win on Monday night, beating Maccabi Rishon Lezion 78-75 on the road in its final game before the start of the Zan Tabak era.

Tabak was appointed as Maccabi’s new head coach earlier Monday and will be unveiled as Guy Goodes’s replacement on Tuesday.

Goodes’s assistant Avi Even was at the helm for the final time on Monday and his short tenure ended with a win after Rishon missed two opportunities to force overtime in the final seconds.

Even was guiding the team for the third time in five days, helping it to its second consecutive win following the victory over Ironi Ness Ziona on Saturday night. Ike Ofoegbu led five Maccabi players in double figures with 14 points and nine rebounds. Devin Smith added 13 points and 10 boards for Maccabi, which improved to 5-2.
