Maccabi Tel Aviv survived a mighty scare to claim the State Cup for a fourth straight year and for the 40th time in its history on Thursday night, beating Maccabi Haifa 76-68 at Nokia Arena.

Tel Aviv was in a comfortable position at halftime, taking a double-digit gap (42-31) into the break.

However, the yellow-and-blue scored just 10 points in the third period and Haifa almost erased the deficit completely before taking a 61-57 lead with 6:40 to play in the game thanks to a 13-2 run.
