Hapoel Jerusalem clinches progress to final, ending eight-year drought

Hapoel Jerusalem advanced to the BSL final for the first time since 2007 on Thursday night, beating Maccabi Rishon Lezion 90-74 at the Jerusalem Arena to complete a 3-0 sweep.

Jerusalem opened a double- digit gap in the first quarter and never looked back, improving to 6-0 in the post-season and registering its 21st win from the past 23 BSL games overall.

Hapoel will have to wait 11 days for the start of the home-and-away final, with the first leg to be held at the lower seed on June 22. The return leg will be played at the higher seed three days later, with aggregate score over the two games to decide the champion.
