A fifth win this season for Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv in the Tel Aviv Derby. 106-93 vs Hapoel. The final score does not make justice to Maccabi's dominance throughout the game. Only lack of concentration in the final minutes, enabled the home team to come out with a decent score.
Maccabi opened strongly (13-6), Hapoel came back to take their only lead (22-21) but a Halperin three pointer
Made it 27-24 at the end if the first quarter. At half time the Yellows led 58-43 and at the end of the third period 86-66.
An excellent game for Yaniv Green, who returned to Usishkin for the first time since last season when he played for the Reds, socred 18 pts in 80%FG and pulled down 6 rbds.
