Steamrolling Maccabi TA makes hard work of Gilboa

After claiming an impressive Euroleague win over Real Madrid 48 hours previously, Maccabi Tel Aviv cooled down with a harder-than-expected 85-75 BSL victory over Hapoel Gilboa/Galil at Yad Eliyahu Arena on Saturday night.

Maccabi notched its 12th consecutive league win to improve to 16-2, but only after overcoming a scare against one of the BSL’s worst teams.

Gilboa closed within a mere two points (77-75) inside the final two minutes of the contest, but Maccabi would clinch the win by scoring the final eight points of the night for its 19th victory from the last 20 games over all competitions.
