Jerrells Beats the Buzzer
Great road win for Hapoel "Bank Yahav' Jerusalem at Hapoel Holon
Fantastic game of basketball we had last night at Holon. Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem beat Hapoel Holon after Curtis Jerrells beat the buzzer and gave the Reds the 73-71 win.
Hapoel started well with Jerrells, Timor, Kinsey, Eliyahu and Peterson and took the lead early. Richard Howell got his 1st minutes in Hapoel already in the 1st quarter and he finished the game with 6 points and 11 rebounds. Alessandro Gentile got his debut as well in the 2nd quarter. In the 4th quarter, the local side managed to stop Hapoel's offense and tied the game. The last minutes were exciting and intense, and only Jerrells' big shot at the end was the difference. Watch the highlights:
Jerrells 20, Peterson 15 (7 rebounds & 3 blocks), Timor 12, Eliyahu 10, Dyson 8, Howell 6 (11 rebounds), Kinsey 2. Haleprin, Zelekovits and Gentile did not scored.
Amar'e Stoudemire was not on the roster (rest).
Hapoel are sitting in the 5th place in the Israeli League with a 15-13 record and next Thursday (27/4) they will host Bnei Herzliya.
