The game, held behind closed doors at the Menorah Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv, was opened strongly by the home team, who led 13-4 after five minutes, but three pointers by Ali Muhammed helped the visitors narrow the gap to 18-22 by the end of the first quarter.

Fenerbahce took the lead again in the 27th minute (49-47), and kept it until the end of the third quarter (56-54), mainly thanks to points by Nando de Colo.

The Turkish side's lead rose to 62-54 at the beginning of the last quarter, and to 69-58 with five minutes to go.

Points by Scottie Wilbekin cut the deficit to 63-69 with three minutes to go, but Maccabi could not get any closer.
