Bagatskis begins Mac TA tenure with visit to Rishon

The Ainars Bagatskis era at Maccabi Tel Aviv gets underway on Monday night when the yellow- and-blue visits Maccabi Rishon Lezion in BSL action. Maccabi will be hoping the Latvian’s tenure lasts a lot longer than those of Erez Edelstein, who was sacked just five games into the season, and Rami Hadar, who resigned after less than two months as his replacement.

Bagatskis is inheriting a team in the midst of its worst ever Euroleague run, with Maccabi dropping to its fifth consecutive defeat in continental action on Friday, squandering a 17-point halftime lead on the way to an 86-84 loss to David Blatt’s Darussafaka.
