Eilat stuns Maccabi to force Game 5

In what seemed like an impossible scenario just last week, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Eilat will meet on Wednesday night in a decisive Game 5 for a place in the BSL final.

Eilat’s 92-79 home win over Maccabi on Sunday night tied the best-of-five series at 2-2 and set up a one-game winner-takesall clash for a place in the final against Hapoel Jerusalem.

Maccabi crushed Eilat 86-64 on the road last Sunday to open what seemed like an unassailable 2-0 lead. However, after claiming a stunning 104-98 overtime victory in Game 3 in Tel Aviv last Wednesday and triumphing on Sunday, Eilat finds itself within one win of becoming just the second team in Israeli basketball history to erase a 0-2 deficit in the playoffs.
