Eilat completes epic rally to oust Mac TA

For the first time since 1993, Maccabi Tel Aviv has failed to reach the BSL final.

Hapoel Eilat recorded one of the biggest upsets in Israeli basketball history on Wednesday night, claiming a 79-76 win at Nokia Arena in the decisive Game 5 of the semifinal series to complete a comeback from 0-2.

Maccabi seemed to be cruising to its 21st straight final when it held a 2-0 lead in the series and was ahead by double-digits in Game 3 at home. However, Eilat stayed alive with a win in overtime, and after tying the series at home earlier this week, capped a remarkable week by beating the yellow-and-blue on the road for a second straight time to advance to the final where it will face Hapoel Jerusalem.
