Mac TA makes it six straight cups

Despite all the talk of a new order being established in Israeli basketball, Maccabi Tel Aviv proved on Sunday night that it will take something special to topple it from its throne.

After a tight first half to the State Cup final at the Jerusalem Arena, Maccabi outplayed Hapoel Jerusalem after the break on the way to a 94-76 win and a sixth consecutive cup triumph.

Jerusalem truly believed this was its year. For the first time it was playing a cup final at its home arena and with a vulnerable looking Maccabi the opponent, Jerusalem was brimming with confidence entering Sunday.
