The team break is over and the basketball Premier League is back. The eighth round started today (Friday) at noon with a single game between Hapoel Jerusalem and Hapoel Eilat, at the end of which the locals won 64:80, maintained the perfect balance at home and first place in the league.

In the ranks of the host, Suleiman Braimo made a renewed and successful debut, the inside player who returned about six months after he left and in front of his first team in Israel scored 8 points and picked up 5 rebounds in 23 minutes on the floor. Halperin's list of goals was led by Jaylen Adams (16), Retio Obasohan (14) and Sean Kilpatrick (11), but Willie Workman certainly excelled on the defensive side alongside the 10 points he scored. The one who prevented Eilat from a hard defeat was Brion Allen, who scored 21 points in 69.2 percent of the field and if it were not for him it would have ended with a much higher difference.

On Monday, Hapoel Jerusalem will face a critical game against Krashiaka in the Champions League and Halperin can certainly be pleased with his players' performance with a return from the break, but will certainly emphasize the problematic figure outside the arc - Jerusalem scored 7 shots from 23 attempts and finished with only 30.4 percent of the three.

First quarter

Hapoel Jerusalem came up in a quintet with Martin Obasohan, Sean Kilpatrick, Willy Workman, Kaiser Gates and Itai Segev, while from the other side Hapoel Eilat came up with Roi Hoover, Brion Allen, Tzof Ben Moshe, Christian Doolittle and Meron Roina.

Obasuhan scored four straight points in the opening and also Workman with a wonderful lay-up bounced off the arena sitters, but Allen did not allow the locals to escape.

Braimo went up to the floor, won applause and also scored first points when he set 6: 9, scored two more points and together with Workman who scored ran the host to the record advantage,

Second quarter

The second quarter kicked off with a 3-pointer by Kaiser Gates and the hosts went up to a first double-digit lead in the game, but the visitors did not say desperate, shifting gears and slowly returning to the game.

Ben Moshe with a first three reduced the difference, Alan also continued to snipe and went down to the break with 13 points in 66.7 percent from the field and precisely in these minutes the host players missed again and again, especially outside the arc (2 of 11 at the break) and the scoreboard showed

28:34 to the locals after 20 minutes

Third quarter

The one who came out like the muzzle of a cannon from the half-time break to the floor was Kilpatrick, who scored 7 consecutive points and returned Jerusalem to a double-digit Yaron of 30:43.

Eilat responded with its own 0: 8 run with threes by Doolittle and Hoover and Halperin had to call a timeout.

Although Gates, Kilpatrick and Adams continued to dictate the pace, Workman stopped the guest attack time and time again with impressive actions and although Allen continued to be Eilat's main points supplier, he failed to narrow the gap considerably.

Fourth quarter

Only three minutes and 10 seconds within the final and decisive quarter are what made the difference.

Jerusalem did lead safely, but at that time it escaped to a record advantage of 18 points.

Obasuhan could not hoover his team back into the game even though he missed a lot, took responsibility and squeezed an unsportsmanlike offense from White, but the latter worked hard under the basket and together with Schuchman reduced the difference to single digits towards the end minutes.

However, Adams and Workman regained control of the game and prevented Halperin and his players from putting unnecessary pressure on the road to

a 64:80 victory
