First game – first win

Carlos ArroyoMaccabi Tel-Aviv started their practice games with an easy 95-60 win oner Galil/Golan, which is coached by Oded Katash. It was one way game since the beginning, while Maccabi took an early 25-13 lead and closed the first half in 52-22, thanks to Carlos Arroyo's great performance and D'or Fischer who showed good rebound skill and block shots.

The second half was "garbage time", that gave Tal Burstein opportunity to come back after a long-term injury.

Maccabi played without Omri Caspi, Lior Eliyahu (national team), Rodney White and Marcus Fizer (injury) and Jason Williams, who cut his lip and didn't play.

Arroyo scored 24 points with 4 assists, Batista 17 and Fischer 15 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks.
