Hapoel Jerusalem on brink of Eurocup ouster after tight loss in Lithuania

Hapoel Jerusalem is on the verge of yet another early Eurocup exit after once more suffering a heartbreaking road defeat on Tuesday night, losing 87-85 to Neptunas Klaipeda in Lithuania.

Jerusalem fell to 2-5 in Group F after erasing a 19-point deficit to close within a single point in the final minute, only to miss an opportunity to force overtime at the buzzer.

Danny Franco’s team will find itself two games back of a place in the top four, which will lead to the Last 32, with three games to play should Nizhny Novgorod claim a home win over rock-bottom Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd on Wednesday.
