Maccabi Tel Aviv registered its eighth league win a row, crushing Hapoel Gilboa/Afula 105-81 at Nokia arena.
Jamie Arnold was unstoppable with 32 points (12 for 13 from the field) in just 23 minutes. Will Bynum contributed 10 points, 5 assists and 5 steals, and Lior Eliyahu dunked his way to 11 points.
Maccabi dominated the first quarter, 31-20, and the game looked as good as over, but the yellows fell asleep in the second quarter and a strong performance by Rich Melzer (27 points) put Afula back in the game.
Maccabi stepped up in the middle of the third quarter with Arnold scoring almost in every possession. Noel Felix came off the bench and had some quality minutes with 8 points, 4 boards and a huge block.
Maccabi: Arnold 32, Sharp 11, Eliyahu 11, Bynum 10, Felix 8, Jasaitis 8, Shason 8, Burstein 6, Green 6, Halperin 3, Vujcic 2.
