GAME REPORT

17.08.2014
Visiting Israel Too Hot For Bulgaria
Omri Casspi (Israel)
Omri Casspi scored 19 points for Israel

Israel converted an outlandish 72% of their shots from two-point range to hit the century mark in a 100-84 win over Bulgaria on the road, on Day 3 of the EuroBasket 2015 2nd Qualifying Round.

The Israelis have now improved to 2-1 in the Group B standings while Bulgaria are yet to pick up a victory and remain bottom of the table.

Both teams struggled offensively for most of the first half and the low-scoring start appeared to fit Bulgaria just fine as the hosts were leading 19-18 with 2:58 remaining to the end of the opening period.

It was then that the excellent on Sunday Omri Casspi drilled a triple to signal Israel's attempt to speed up the pace somewhat, and the guests reached the first buzzer with a 29-22 lead.

Another triple, this time by Guy Pnini with 7:11 left to play in the second frame, gave Israel their first double-digit lead, 38-27.

Aleksandar Vezenkov replied from long range to reduce to 42-38, 1:27 from the half-time break, but Casspi gave Israel a 46-38 cushion before the break.

Israel quickly restored the double-digit lead when play resumed and, with Bulgaria struggling to keep up, Dor Fischer finished a fast-break at the rim and pushed the gap to its highest value all night, 65-41, with 5:54 left in the third quarter.

The winners scored 58 of their points in the paint and were led by Casspi's 19-point effort, while Fischer finished with a sublime double-double of 18 points and 13 rebounds and Mekel collected 16 points and seven assists.

For Bulgaria, Vezenkov had 18 points and five rebounds and Hristo Zahariev picked up 15 points and seven boards in the losing effort.

 

COACH QUOTES

Quotes Bulgaria vs. Israel

Georgi Mladenov, Bulgaria Head Coach
"We gave up 100 points. How to win? We had to score 110. We did our to best to scout the team of Israel. But we looked like we saw their team for the first time. We didn't show more than 30% of the concentration and the aggression we had in the game against Montenegro. We have 7-8 players that are making their debut for the national team this summer. Now they play 10-15 minutes. There was some pressure after the good game we made in Montenegro and because we were playing at home."

Aleksander Vezenkov, Bulgaria
"Israel was really the better team today. When we give up 100 points we can't talk. They were better in rebounding; they shot well on the fast breaks. We fought in the first half, but after the break just for two minutes then the game was over. In the second half the game looked more like a rodeo. We really tried, but it didn't happen."

Guy Pnini, Israel
"We are very happy that we won this game with 100 points made. It was really important for us. We knew Bulgaria is a great team. But we did our plan. We executed well and we made it easy."

Erez Edelshtein, Israel Head Coach
"Thanks to the Bulgarian Federation who have hosted us for three days. We know that the Bulgarian team is very young, but a very talented team. We saw the game in Montenegro. We played very well as a team, we shared the ball, we found the open man. I am very happy that we won in this tough arena. 15 years ago they told me, that the arena is an old gym, so now it is a really old one."

COACH QUOTES

17.08.2014
Quotes Bulgaria vs. Israel

Georgi Mladenov, Bulgaria Head Coach
"We gave up 100 points. How to win? We had to score 110. We did our to best to scout the team of Israel. But we looked like we saw their team for the first time. We didn't show more than 30% of the concentration and the aggression we had in the game against Montenegro. We have 7-8 players that are making their debut for the national team this summer. Now they play 10-15 minutes. There was some pressure after the good game we made in Montenegro and because we were playing at home."

Aleksander Vezenkov, Bulgaria
"Israel was really the better team today. When we give up 100 points we can't talk. They were better in rebounding; they shot well on the fast breaks. We fought in the first half, but after the break just for two minutes then the game was over. In the second half the game looked more like a rodeo. We really tried, but it didn't happen."

Guy Pnini, Israel
"We are very happy that we won this game with 100 points made. It was really important for us. We knew Bulgaria is a great team. But we did our plan. We executed well and we made it easy."

Erez Edelshtein, Israel Head Coach
"Thanks to the Bulgarian Federation who have hosted us for three days. We know that the Bulgarian team is very young, but a very talented team. We saw the game in Montenegro. We played very well as a team, we shared the ball, we found the open man. I am very happy that we won in this tough arena. 15 years ago they told me, that the arena is an old gym, so now it is a really old one."
