Hapoel Tel Aviv recorded two straight BSL wins for the first time this season on Tuesday night, beating Maccabi Haifa 85-74 at the Drive-In Arena to improve to 6-9.

Hapoel had lost five of six games prior to this week, turning up the heat on coach Sharon Avrahami, who replaced the sacked Oded Katash earlier this season. However, it followed up Saturday’s win over Ironi Nahariya with a convincing victory over Maccabi Haifa to steady the ship.

Raviv Limonad led six Hapoel players in double figures with 18 points, with Matan Naor and Talor Battle scoring 15 points each. Will Graves had 14 points for Haifa, which fell to 8-6.

“We didn’t play great basketball but we really gave our all,” said Limonad. “We weren’t that good on offense but we did our job on defense.”

Bnei Herzliya continued its excellent form on Tuesday, improving to 9-6 with a 95-92 win over Ironi Ness Ziona. Herzlilya has won nine of 12 games, including six of its past eight, with its defeats coming against league leaders Hapoel Jerusalem and Maccabi Tel Aviv.
