National League Round 7: Change at the top of the standings - Nov 27, 2012

National League round 7 caused change at the leadership position. Second defeat of league's leader Hod Hasharon (5-2) against third ranked Elitzur Yavne (5-1) 75-68 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Hod Hasharon. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Elitzur Yavne made 16-of-18 free shots (88.9 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of Liberian-American Pele Paelay (193-84, college: Co.Carolina, agency: Two Points) who helped to win the game recording 23 points and 6 rebounds. Swingman Elad Hofman (192-85) contributed with 13 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Nigerian power forward Chukwudinma Odiakosa (203-85, college: Illinois St., agency: N.E.T.) answered with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 18 rebounds for Hod Hasharon. Elitzur Yavne moved-up to second place, which they share with Ironi Nes-Ziona. Hod Hasharon at the other side dropped to the fourth position with two games lost. They share it with Ironi Nahariya. They were replaced at the leadership position by Ironi K-A. Hod Hasharon will play next round against Hapoel Kazrin trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Elitzur Yavne will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Ironi Nes-Ziona in Nes Ziyona.
Maccabi Kiryat Bialik's fans can finally celebrate the first win of their team after six consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat Maccabi K/G (1-5) 100-95. American players dominated the game. It was a great evening for forward Dallis Joyner (201-90, college: Stony Brook) who led his team to a victory scoring 29 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Matt Shamis helped adding 34 points (!!!) (made all of his twelve free throws !!!). At the losing side forward Will Harris (198-86, college: Albany) responded with 36 points (!!!) and 7 rebounds. Maccabi Kiryat Bialik (1-6) left bottom position moving up to thirteenth place, which they share with Kiryat Tivon. It was Maccabi K/G's third loss in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the twelfth position with five games lost. Maccabi Kiryat Bialik will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Maccabi K/G will play at home against Hapoel Afula (#6) to get more than just one victory in their record.
The game in Kazrin supposed to be also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Ironi Nes-Ziona (5-1) played at the court of 8th ranked Hapoel Kazrin (3-4). Ironi Nes-Ziona smashed Hapoel Kazrin 94-58 on Tuesday. It was an exceptional evening for Gabe Blair who led the winners and scored 23 points and 7 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Lawrence Westbrook came up with 25 points for Hapoel Kazrin in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Ironi Nes-Ziona have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Elitzur Yavne. Newly promoted Hapoel Kazrin keeps the eighth position with four games lost. They share it with Hapoel K/S. Ironi Nes-Ziona will meet at home league's second-placed Elitzur Yavne in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Hapoel Kazrin will play against Hod Hasharon (#4) and hope to secure a win.
The game in Afula was also worth to mention about. 5th ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (4-3) played at the court of seventh ranked Hapoel Afula (4-2). Hapoel Afula defeated Ironi Ramat Gan 90-77. Allen Durham fired a double-double by scoring 23 points and 15 rebounds for the winners. The victory was the third consecutive win for Hapoel Afula. They moved-up to sixth place. Ironi Ramat Gan at the other side dropped to the seventh position with three games lost. Hapoel Afula's next round opponent will be Maccabi K/G (#12) in Kiryat Gat which should be theoretically an easy game.

Other games in round 7 were not that significant. Ironi Nahariya beat Kiryat Tivon on the road 84-70. Elitzur Ramla lost to Ironi K-A on its own court 80-89. Hapoel K/S managed to outperform Macc.B.Yaakov in Kfar Saba 99-88.
The most impressive performance of 7th round was 29 points and 10 rebounds by Ramon Clemente of Ironi Nahariya.


Kiryat Tivon - Ironi Nahariya 70-84

No shocking result in a game when sixth ranked Ironi Nahariya (5-2) beat on the road 13th ranked Kiryat Tivon (1-6) 84-70. The game was mostly controlled by Ironi Nahariya. Kiryat Tivon was better in fourth quarter 21-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. American-Puerto Rican Ramon Clemente (200-85, college: Wichita St., agency: Global Sports Plaza) fired a double-double by scoring 29 points and 10 rebounds (on 12-of-14 shooting from the field) for the winners. Guard Nir Golan (180-86) chipped in 13 points and 8 assists. Naturalized Canadian guard Simon Farine (188-87) produced 14 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals and American forward Taylor Darby (203, college: Pepperdine) added 15 points and 11 rebounds respectively for lost side. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Ironi Nahariya moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Hod Hasharon. Kiryat Tivon lost their third game in a row. They keep the thirteenth position with six games lost. Ironi Nahariya's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Elitzur Yavne at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Kiryat Tivon will play against Maccabi K/G (#12) in Kiryat Gat and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Elitzur Ramla - Ironi K-A 80-89

Very expected game when 11th ranked Elitzur Ramla (2-5) lost at home to second ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (6-1) 89-80. It looked good early as Elitzur Ramla took an 1-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Ironi Kiryat Ata had a 19-14 second period charge getting the lead and Elitzur Ramla was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 80-89. Ironi Kiryat Ata forced 19 Elitzur Ramla turnovers. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. American point guard Darrin Govens (185-88, college: St.Joseph's) fired 20 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. His fellow American import forward Ivory Clark (198-85) chipped in 21 points and 9 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). American forward Johndre Jefferson (207-88, college: S.Carolina) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points and 16 rebounds and guard Or Zinderman (188-89) added 14 points respectively for lost side. Elitzur Ramla's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. The victory was the third consecutive win for Ironi Kiryat Ata. They keep a position of league leader. Elitzur Ramla lost their fourth game in a row. They dropped to the tenth place with five games lost. Ironi Kiryat Ata's next round opponent will be Hapoel Kfar Saba (#8) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Elitzur Ramla will play against Ironi Nes-Ziona in Nes Ziyona.

Hapoel Kazrin - Ironi Nes-Ziona 58-94

The game in Kazrin supposed to be also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Ironi Nes-Ziona (5-1) played at the court of 8th ranked Hapoel Kazrin (3-4). Ironi Nes-Ziona smashed Hapoel Kazrin 94-58 on Tuesday. The game without a history. Ironi Nes-Ziona led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Hapoel Kazrin's 30. Ironi Nes-Ziona forced 22 Hapoel Kazrin turnovers and outrebounded them 39-26 including 25 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. It was an exceptional evening for American forward Gabe Blair (203-87, college: Wichita St.) who led the winners and scored 23 points and 7 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Naturalized Welsh forward Tal Michael Dunne (197-87) accounted for 22 points and 4 assists for the winning side. Four Ironi Nes-Ziona players scored in double figures. American guard Lawrence Westbrook (183-88, college: Minnesota) came up with 25 points and naturalized Russian power forward Anton Kazarnovski (205-85) added 13 points and 10 rebounds respectively for Hapoel Kazrin in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Ironi Nes-Ziona have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Elitzur Yavne. Newly promoted Hapoel Kazrin keeps the eighth position with four games lost. They share it with Hapoel K/S. Ironi Nes-Ziona will meet at home league's second-placed Elitzur Yavne in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Hapoel Kazrin will play against Hod Hasharon (#4) and hope to secure a win.
