The Final four of the Israeli cup takes place in nokia arena.
Hapoel Tel Aviv (2nd division) vs. Barak Netanya (1st Division) 19:00 MONDAY
78-77 to Barak Netanya after a tight ending they managed to secure the spot in the final. Hapoel had double-figures lead a few times along the game but they couldn't manage to take it all the way to the end, Banks who was there for Netanya in the tough moments with some crucial three pointers was also the one to score the last point from the line, then he missed the 2nd shot on purpose with only 1.7 seconds left, Hapoel couldn't even get the rebound and definatly couldn't reach a comfertable shot. The end of the somewhat surprising way of the reds from the 2nd division in this year's cup
Maccabi Tel Aviv (1st division) vs. Maccabi Ashdod (1st division) 21:30 MONDAY
98-61 for Maccabi, another easy win, once again it was over in the first quarter that ended with 27-3 for Maccabi.. Yes Ashdod scored 3 points in the first 10 minutes... Not much to say about such game, 35 minutes of pure garbage time.
Obviously the main interest goes to Hapoel, the team that was revived by its fans and got up all the way from the very last division to the 2nd (this season) with no loss in league games untill this season, but they're very rich for their league and got some great players that went there for their love for the team and stuff like that, what everybody wants (except for the not many fans of Netanya and Ashdod ) is a derby match in the fianl, I must admit I'd love to see those red assholes cry their way out of Nokia Arena after being bashed by 50 or so
Talking about red, anybody noticed Hapoel Jerusalem is out?
