Hapoel Jerusalem jumps out to big final advantage

Hapoel Jerusalem is on the verge of claiming a first and historic BSL championship after registering an 80-65 win at Hapoel Eilat on Monday night in the first leg of the two-game home-and-away final.

Jerusalem hosts the return leg on Thursday and can afford to lose by as many as 14 points and still lift the championship shield.

Jerusalem pulled ahead in the closing stages of the second quarter on Monday and remained in complete control until the final buzzer. After finishing as league runner-up six times in the past, Jerusalem is ideally placed to finally celebrate a championship in its first final since 2007, and in front of its own fans no less.
