Farmar struggles, but Maccabi squeaks out victory

Jordan Farmar had perhaps his worst overseas game yet, scoring just 6 points in 24 minutes on 1-5 shooting (and a dismal 3-8 from the line), but Maccabi outscored Barak Netanya 33-24 in the fourth quarter and came away with an 87-85 victory.

Farmar added five assists, but also committed five fouls and lost four turnovers in his second game in the Israel Basketball League (IBL) and 8th game overall overseas. Maccabi is 2-0 in the IBL, and 9-1 in their three leagues combined. Maccabi Tel-Aviv plays next on November 3rd, in a Euroleague contest against Real Madrid, led by Rudy Fernandez.
