Mac TA survives Haifa scare to extend streak

A lethargic Maccabi Tel Aviv came back from 21 points down to record its 13th consecutive BSL win on Monday night, beating Maccabi Haifa 74-70 at Yad Eliyahu Arena.

Maccabi was completely lost for much of the opening half, hitting just one of its first 17 field-goal attempts and allowing Haifa to race into a considerable cushion.

However, the yellow-and-blue closed to within five points (41- 36) at the break and outlasted the greens in the second half to improve to 17-2 in the BSL, four games clear of second place Hapoel Jerusalem.
