In case there was any doubt, Maccabi Tel Aviv is in the midst of a full-blown crisis.
Less than six months after winning the Euroleague title, Maccabi was embarrassed for the third time in a week on Monday, dropping to a humbling 78-58 home defeat to arch-rival Hapoel Tel Aviv.
Hapoel opened a 15-point gap (25-10) by the end of the first quarter and was never even challenged, cruising to a memorable win in the second half.
The yellow-and-blue was brimming with confidence just last week. It entered the BSL showdown with Hapoel Jerusalem with a 4-0 record and on the back of an impressive Euroleague road win over Alba Berlin.
