Mac TA beats Greens to strengthen hold on second place

Maccabi Tel Aviv gained a small measure of revenge against Maccabi Haifa on Sunday night, claiming a 67-59 win in BSL action at Yad Eliyahu Arena, less than two months after being handed its heaviest local defeat in club history by the Greens.

Tel Aviv and Haifa are the league’s two best defensive teams, but their offensive deficiencies had just as much to do with Sunday’s low-scoring affair. The yellow-and-blue led 27-21 at the break and remained in control until the final buzzer, moving back within two games of Hapoel Jerusalem and first place and three games ahead of Haifa in third.
