Hapoel Jerusalem lost in the BSL for the first time in over a month on Sunday night, while Maccabi Tel Aviv bounced back from its Euroleague exit with an easy win over Kiryat Gat.

Jerusalem fell to 9-3 after its fivegame winning streak was snapped by an 80-76 defeat at Maccabi Ashdod.

The hosts were in control for much of the night, but Jerusalem fought back and Tony Gaffney’s three-point play with 3:03 minutes remaining gave Hapoel its first lead in the second half. However, Ashdod replied with an 8-0 run, capped by a Yehu Orland three-pointer with 1:24 on the clock, to clinch the win.

Isaiah Swann led Ashdod with 25 points and eight rebounds. Diante Garrett added 18 points for Tzvika Sherf’s team, which improved to 6-6. E.J. Rowland led Jerusalem with 17 points.
