Jerusalem defeats Rishon for sixth consecutive BSL victory

Hapoel Jerusalem edged closer to securing the No. 1 seed in the BSL playoffs on Sunday night, registering its sixth straight win by overcoming Maccabi Rishon Lezion 81-66 on the road.

Jerusalem improved to 21-6, two games ahead of Maccabi Tel Aviv with six regular season games to play. Even should Maccabi triumph in its final six contests, Hapoel only requires four wins from its remaining games as it holds the tiebreaker against Maccabi, sweeping the yellow- and-blue 3-0 in the regular season.
