Maccabi Tel Aviv continued it's strong play with a 101-95 win over Olympiacos Piraeus at Nokia Arena on Thursday night. The win was Maccabi's third straight and kept the two-time defending Euroleague champs one game behind Group B leaders Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius, which topped AJ Milano by the same score in overtime on Wednesday. Will Solomon led all scorers with a season-high 29 points and seven assists, while Sharon Shason had his best game in a Maccabi uniform with 16 points in 21 minutes. Olympiacos's performance was also highlighted by two players. Big man Andrija Zizic set a Euroleague record by shooting 17-for-17 from the free throw line on his way to a season-best 23 points. Zizic also drew 10 fouls and grabbed nine rebounds. Former Maccabi player Quincy Lewis, visiting Israel for the first time since he wore yellow-and-blue, had a season-high 24 points in defeat. Maccabi led throughout the game, but Olympiacos never gave in and was always a few scores away from a comeback. A Solomon slam the play after Euroleague MVP Anthony Parker picked up his third foul in the third quarter put Tel Aviv up by 10. Solomon continued to match Zizic and Lewis's heroics to hep Maccabi to improve to 6-3 this season.
