Despite advancing to the semifinals of the State Cup earlier this week, Hapoel Jerusalem remains in crisis mode after suffering a humbling 89-70 defeat at Hapoel Holon in postponed BSL action on Wednesday night.

Jerusalem edged Maccabi Rishon Lezion 81-78 in the cup quarterfinals on Sunday for its second win in the competition in four days. However, it failed to build on those triumphs on Wednesday, dropping to its fourth consecutive league loss and a 9-4 record after opening the campaign with a club record nine straight wins.

There was further bad news for Jerusalem on Wednesday, with veteran center Yaniv Green suffering what is likely a season-ending knee injury after slipping in the second quarter.
