Maccabi Tel Aviv moved to the summit of the BSL standings on Monday night, beating Maccabi Rishon Lezion 74-66 to leapfrog Hapoel Jerusalem which has played one game fewer.

Tel Aviv looked to be cruising after opening a 17-point cushion (54-37) midway through the third quarter. However, Rishon fought back and the score was tied with five minutes remaining, only for Tel Aviv to respond with a 9-0 run to clinch the victory.
