Hapoel aims to get Eurocup campaign on track

After beginning its Eurocup campaign with a 21-point thrashing at the hands of Nizhny Novgorod, and with the memory of last season still fresh in its mind, Hapoel Jerusalem knows it can’t afford anything but a win when it hosts Lithuania’s Neptunas Klaipeda at the Jerusalem Arena on Wednesday night.

Hapoel suffered a humbling 92-71 loss in Russia last week, with the hosts dominating the second half after coming back from a double-digit deficit in the first.

After finally claiming its first local championship last season, Jerusalem is hoping to once more return to prominence in Europe following several disappointing campaigns.
