Hapoel Holon rebounded from its State Cup thrashing at the hands of Maccabi Tel Aviv with a dramatic 71-70 BSL victory over Barak Netanya on Monday.

After winning five of six games, Holon dropped to a heartbreaking defeat to Ironi Ashkelon before being outplayed by Tel Aviv in the cup semifinals last week.

Dan Shamir’s men seemed to be in real trouble on Monday as well, trailing by 14 points midway through the third quarter.

However, they consistently ate away at the deficit and clinched the win courtesy of Ron Lewis’s basket with 2.9 seconds to play.

“At first I lost the ball and at that point I was just trying to find a lane and make a shot,” said Lewis, who ended the game with 19 points.

“This was a real important win for us. We wanted to get back on the winning track and build ourselves back up after a couple of disappointing results.”

Bryant Dunston had 24 points and 13 rebounds for Holon, which climbed to third place with the win.

Adrian Banks scored 25 points for Netanya, while Brian Asbury had 18 points and 11 boards for Danny Franco’s team, which lost for the fourth time in five games to remain in ninth place.
