One week after the heavy defeat to Armani Milano (75-99), Olympiacos reacted and defeated Maccabi Tel-Aviv at home (88-80).

Vassilis Spanoulis led the winners in scoring with 16 points, with Axel Toupane adding 15 points, on 4/5 from beyond the arc.

On the other hand, DeAndre Kane had a game-high 22 points, along with six assists, for the losing squad, which suffered its third loss in four games.

The “Reds” rallied in the second quarter and outscored their opponents 27-16 to take an eight-point advantage (45-37) and never look back. The hosts established several double-digit leads and cruised to the victory against the Israelis, who never gave up, but came up short in the end.

It was the first time that Olympiacos head coach, David Blatt, faced his former team, as the Greeks improved to 3-1, whereas Maccabi dropped to 1-3.
