Hapoel improved to 3-0, while dropping Kiev to 1-2. Halperin finished with 19 points, a career-high 10 assists and 3 steals for the winners. The hosts benefitted from tremendous play from its reserves: Josh Duncan scored 20 points, Bracey Wright added 13 and Yaniv Green 12. Blake Ahearn led seven Budivelnik scorers in double figures with 16 points. Sergiy Gorbenko and DaJuan Summers netted 12 points apiece, Dainius Salenga and Darjus Lavrinovic scored 11 each and Ricky Minard and Janis Strelnieks each scored 10. Summers also hauled in 12 rebounds and Minard dished 8 assists in defeat.

After a tight start, Kiev pulled away as Summers and Gorbenko drained back-to-back three-pointers to make it 6-13. The lead hit 9-20 on Gorbenko’s third three in as many attempts. Hapoel closed the gap to 4 thanks to big men Duncan and Green before Lavrinovic free throws made it 20-26 at the end of the quarter. Threes by Salenga and Ahearn put Budivelnik ahead by 9 early in the second quarter. The hosts responded with 7 unanswered points and eventually tied the game at 37-37 on Wright’s tip-in. A Halperin three put the hosts in front and Lior Eliyahu helped Hapoel build a 47-41 advantage. However Budivelnik stormed to a 51-56 halftime lead on Summers’s buzzer-beating three.

The visitors’ scorching three-point shooting kept Kiev in control; Minard connected from downtown to make it 57-66. The lead reached double digits before Halperin assisted twice in a 7-0 Jerusalem run that helped close the gap to 67-71 at the end of the quarter. Summers silenced the crowd with an offensive rebound and slam, but the fans were singing again after a pair of baskets from Green. Hapoel tied it at 73-73 after Halperin’s steal and layup before Green capped an 8-0 run for a Jerusalem lead. Strelnieks came through with an acrobatic basket-plus-foul at the other end, but Halperin and co. continued to shine, moving ahead 82-77 on the guard’s three-pointer. A Lavrinovic free throw made it a 2-point game with two and a half minutes remaining. Duncan’s short jumper made it a two-possession game with 25 seconds to go and Jerusalem closed the game out with a defensive stop.

Head Coaches

GREENBERG, BRAD
Hapoel Migdal Jerusalem
"Tonight we witnessed a great game against a very good team, both offensively and defensively. We didn’t succeed in stopping them in the first half and they scored 56 points, but in the second half we locked down on defense and held them to 28. Our guards worked very hard because of mismatches and you can see that they scored half as many points in the second half as they did in the first. We are in a good position, but we still have a lot of work to advance to the next stage. "
BAGATSKIS, AINARS
Budivelnik Kiev
"The game was very complicated for both teams. Our game was very organized and without quick shots. We took good shots, but sometimes we didn’t get back on defense well enough. We played against a good team and our players gained experience. We lost because we missed a lot of shots. "

"This was a very, very important win. A win that brings us another half-step closer to our goal. Only half the games are behind us and we are still not in the next round. "
