After ensuring Maccabi Tel Aviv got back on track in Euroleague action, Pierre Jackson was responsible for a second yellow-and-blue win in three days on Saturday night.

Two late Jackson three-pointers, including the go-ahead basket with 34.3 seconds to play, led Maccabi to a 90-86 victory at Bnei Herzliya in BSL play.

Maccabi remained in first place in the standings and moved to an 11-2 record, two games clear of Hapoel Holon after the latter suffered a surprise 94-79 loss at Hapoel Eilat.

Amit Simhon scored 22 points for Eilat, which improved to 6-7. Glen Rice Jr. had 24 points and 11 rebounds for Holon, which dropped to 9-4.

There was nothing to separate Maccabi and Herzliya with three minutes to play (79-79) and the hosts looked to be in the driving seat after Jeff Adrien scored the next five points.

But after scoring seven late points to lead Maccabi to a victory over Bamberg on Thursday, Jackson nailed a triple with just over a minute to play before hitting the winning basket.

Jackson and Karam Mashour had 17 points each for Maccabi, which visits Olympiacos in Euroleague play on Tuesday.



Adrien had 27 points for Herzliya, which fell to 3-10.
