J’lem, Mac TA claim confidence-boosting wins

Nahariya Hapoel Jerusalem released pressure with its first win in three weeks on Sunday night, beating Hapoel Tel Aviv 72-67 at the Jerusalem Arena to maintain its one-game lead over Maccabi Tel Aviv at the summit of the BSL standings.

Jerusalem entered the game on the back of three straight losses over all competitions and six defeats from its past seven games, increasing the heat on under-fire coach Danny Franco.

The reigning BSL champion didn’t impress on Sunday, but it did enough to return to winning ways and improve to 15-5. There was little to separate the teams for most of the night, but Jerusalem pulled ahead midway through the fourth quarter, and held on for a confidence-boosting victory.
