Maccabi Tel Aviv lost a crucial game against DKV Joventut on Thursday night in what may very well determine the second place slot in the Euroleague group stage. Tel Aviv was ahead most of the game but several mistakes down the stretch resulted in a 16-3 run by the Spanish side and a 98-92 loss. Maccabi's starting guards once again proved that a changes in their positions are required if the Israeli team wishes to advance and reach the top-16, not to mention the round of eight. Yotam Halperin scored only 2 points (0-6 from the field) while Will Bynum finished with 9 points. Derrick Sharp, as usual, picked up the slack, scoring 16 off the bench. Simas Jasaitas drilled five three-pointers on his way to a game-high 24 for Maccabi. Nikola Vujcic finished with 20 points, while Lior Eliyahu ended up on 12.
