    It's a Friday the 13th game. Let's just rest our starters and play Meyers 40 minutes.

    Maccabi Haifa is not even the top team in Israel, probably not top2 either but I want us to win big to send a statement to fans in Israel that we're for real

    Maccabi would be a lot better if they could just add Thomas Robinson. I think he would be a good fit over there.

    Why is Maccabi playing nba teams in the preseason? What's the point? I don't get it.

    If the nba wants to drum up international interest, why not have a chineese team come over here to play nba teams?

    I give you credit for sticking with your guns. I'll hit you with the Trob joke every time, but you always play it off well. Props.

    You are the Trob of S2.

    Is it on TV national station? Why are they playing an Israeli team on Shabbat?

    I was on a business trip 2 years ago and got to see Haifa vs. Tel Aviv (in Romema if I remember the name of the stadium correctly). Probably not the same team anymore. Nothing stood out about either team on that game.

    Just wanted to point this out because I might be the 2nd best Expert on Haifa on S2. Ask your scouting questions as you wish. The answer is "I do not know - but the Moda center is nicer".

    They heard a miracle worker was playing for the Blazers, and wanted to see Lillard walk on water.

    Excellent question. Seems incredibly insensitive. If the NCAA can make a point to not have BYU play on Sundays, we should be willing to push a game against a team from Israel to after sunset on Saturday.

    Their owner is american and I think he's well connected in the basketball community and with NBA execs. It's already maybe the 3rd time they're going on this tour in the preseason.

    I just think it's great we are playing a team called Macabre on Friday the 13th.

    Macabre also describes the likely outcome.

    Speaking of this pointless game: I need a pair of tickets to take my daughter. 100-level only please. I'm not driving an hour and a half each way in the rain for this shit show and sit in the nose bleeds. Just sayin' ;)

    Maccabi. The Maccabis were Israelis 2000+ years ago that fought the Greek empire. Many Sports team in Israel are called Maccabi, it's like a joint union of many sports clubs in many different sports

    BTW, one of their Israeli players is called Oz Blazer, although he writes his last name a bit different
