Hapoel Jerusalem picked up some much needed confidence on Saturday night, returning to winning ways in the BSL with a 99-73 win over Hapoel Eilat at the Jerusalem Arena.

Jerusalem entered the contest in the midst of its first BSL losing streak since last December, dropping to defeats in two league games in a row and in four of its previous five games over all competitions.

Hapoel clinched Saturday’s win with an 11-0 run in the final 2:06 minutes of the third quarter, opening a 16-point gap (75-59) which Eilat never came close to erasing.

Josh Duncan led Jerusalem with 25 points, with Bar Timor adding a career-high 23 points for Hapoel, which improved to 5-2.

“This is a very important win for us,” said Timor.

“We entered the game with many injuries and without much energy and after a tough period so it was great to come back home and register a win.”
