Haifa hands Jerusalem another loss

Hapoel Jerusalem suffered its first BSL home defeat of the season on Sunday night, once more falling at the hands of Maccabi Haifa at the Jerusalem Arena.

Haifa stunned Jerusalem 87-72 on the road in the State Cup round of 16 on December 24 and exactly one month later claimed an impressive 82-72 win in the capital on Sunday to snap Hapoel’s seven-game BSL win streak at the arena.

Haifa controlled the second quarter to take a seven-point margin (50-43) into the interval, but the hosts fought back and there was nothing to separate the sides early in the fourth frame (60-60).
