Gran Canaria sank Maccabi Tel-Aviv

Gran Canaria played very well offensively and beat Maccabi Tel-Aviv at home (84-78) to sink the Israelis to the bottom of the standings.

The Spaniards made a better start to the game (23-15) and retained their lead until the end of the first half (43-38).

Even though Maccabi tried to return to the game, the hosts remained competitive (65-57) and prevented the visitors from turning things around.

Consequently, the Israelis, who played poor defence, suffered another painful defeat in the competition (84-78).

Christopher Evans had a game-high 17 points for the winners, with Clevin Hannah and Eulis Baez adding 15 and 16 points, respectively.

Michael Roll scored a team-high 15 points for the losing squad, as three more players scored in double figures.

Gran Canaria claimed just their second victory in the league (2-5), whereas Maccabi Tel-Aviv were defeated for the sixth time (1-6).
