The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

National League top team - Ironi Nes-Ziona (18-3) had no problems winning another game on Tuesday. This time they crushed ninth ranked Elitzur Ramla (8-13) 92-70. The game without a history. Ironi Nes-Ziona led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Ironi Nes-Ziona forced 20 Elitzur Ramla turnovers. It was a good game for American swingman Bilal Benn (196-86, college: Niagara) who led his team to a victory with 17 points and 7 rebounds. His fellow American import power forward Cyrus Tate (203-85, college: Iowa) contributed with 12 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. American guard Vernon Teel (193-87, college: Loyola Mary, agency: FCM) answered with 18 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for Elitzur Ramla. 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 a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain first place with 18-3 record. Elitzur Ramla at the other side keeps the ninth position with 13 games lost. Ironi Nes-Ziona are looking forward to face Hapoel Kfar Saba (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Elitzur Ramla will play against Hod Hasharon and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
The game in Yavne was also worth to mention about. Second ranked Ironi Nahariya (17-4) played at the court of 5th ranked Elitzur Yavne (14-7). Ironi Nahariya defeated Elitzur Yavne 82-71. American-Puerto Rican Ramon Clemente (200-85, college: Wichita St., agency: Global Sports Plaza) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 31 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 blocks for the winners and Aviram Zelkovits chipped in 18 points and 7 rebounds. The best for the losing side was naturalized Ukrainian power forward Igor Nesterenko (201-90) with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds. Ironi Nahariya have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain second place with 17-4 record behind leader Ironi Nes-Ziona. Elitzur Yavne at the other side dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. Ironi Nahariya will play against Hapoel Kazrin (#8) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Elitzur Yavne will play against Maccabi K/G (#13) in Kiryat Gat and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Kazrin was also quite interesting. Third ranked Hod Hasharon (16-5) played at the court of 8th ranked Hapoel Kazrin (10-11). Hod Hasharon defeated Hapoel Kazrin 90-80 on Tuesday. Chukwudinma Odiakosa nailed 21 points and 9 rebounds for the winning side. Mike James came up with 22 points and 9 rebounds for Hapoel Kazrin in the defeat. Hapoel Kazrin's coach Ziv Bartana rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Hod Hasharon maintains third place with 16-5 record having just two points less than leader Ironi Nes-Ziona. Newly promoted Hapoel Kazrin keeps the eighth position with 11 games lost. Hod Hasharon will meet at home Elitzur Ramla (#9) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Hapoel Kazrin will play against the league's second-placed Ironi Nahariya and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Afula. It ended with only three-point home defeat of 4th placed Hapoel Afula (13-8) to eleventh ranked Beer Yaakov (7-14) 116-113 on Tuesday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the home team. The best player for the winners was Jermaine Hall who scored 43 points (!!!) and 6 rebounds. Beer Yaakov moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Hapoel K/S. Hapoel Afula at the other side dropped to the fifth position with eight games lost. Beer Yaakov's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Maccabi Kiryat Bialik (#14) at home. Hapoel Afula will play against Hapoel Kfar Saba (#10).
The game between sixth ranked Ironi Kiryat Ata (12-9) and 10th ranked Hapoel Kfar Saba (7-14) in Kiryat Ata on Tuesday ended with biggest points difference. Ironi Kiryat Ata outscored guests from Kfar Saba 90-62. It was a good game for Ivory Clark who led his team to a victory with 19 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Despite that victory Ironi Kiryat Ata went down to seventh position due to points difference. Loser Hapoel Kfar Saba keeps the tenth place with 14 games lost. Ironi Kiryat Ata will face league's leader Ironi Nes-Ziona in Nes Ziyona in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hapoel Kfar Saba will play on the road against the league's leader Ironi Nes-Ziona (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

In the last two games of round 21 Ironi Ramat Gan beat Maccabi K/B on the road 87-79. Kiryat Tivon won against Maccabi K/G on its own court 94-81.
The most impressive performance of 21th round was 31 points and 14 rebounds by Lenny Daniel of Maccabi K/G.


Elitzur Yavne - Ironi Nahariya 71-82

The game in Yavne was also worth to mention about. Second ranked Ironi Nahariya (17-4) played at the court of 5th ranked Elitzur Yavne (14-7). Ironi Nahariya defeated Elitzur Yavne 82-71. The game was mostly controlled by Ironi Nahariya. Elitzur Yavne was better in fourth quarter 24-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Ironi Nahariya forced 19 Elitzur Yavne turnovers. American-Puerto Rican Ramon Clemente (200-85, college: Wichita St., agency: Global Sports Plaza) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 31 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 blocks for the winners and guard Aviram Zelkovits (193-89) chipped in 18 points and 7 rebounds. Four Ironi Nahariya players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was naturalized Ukrainian power forward Igor Nesterenko (201-90) with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds and American swingman Brian Laing (195-85, college: Seton Hall, agency: I.D.S. Law) scored 22 points and 5 rebounds. Ironi Nahariya have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain second place with 17-4 record behind leader Ironi Nes-Ziona. Elitzur Yavne at the other side dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. Ironi Nahariya will play against Hapoel Kazrin (#8) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Elitzur Yavne will play against Maccabi K/G (#13) in Kiryat Gat and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Maccabi K/B - Ironi Ramat Gan 79-87

No shocking result in a game when seventh ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (13-8) beat on the road bottom-ranked Maccabi Kiryat Bialik (3-18) 87-79 on Tuesday. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 25-17. But Maccabi Kiryat Bialik won second period 24-18. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Ironi Ramat Gan forced 23 Maccabi Kiryat Bialik turnovers. Maccabi Kiryat Bialik was plagued by 26 personal fouls down the stretch. It was a good game for the former international power forward Amit Tamir (208-79, college: California) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds. American power forward Keith Ramsey (205-87, college: Missouri, agency: Hart Sports Mngm) contributed with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds for the winners.

Ironi K-A - Hapoel K/S 90-62

Power forward Kobi Izik (204-83, agency: Avi Zilberman) contributed with 16 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Forward Eitan Rotemberg (197-91) answered with 14 points and American forward Maurice McNeil (205-87, college: Houston) added 5 points and 12 rebounds in the effort for Hapoel Kfar Saba. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Despite that victory Ironi Kiryat Ata went down to seventh position due to points difference. Loser Hapoel Kfar Saba keeps the tenth place with 14 games lost. Ironi Kiryat Ata will face league's leader Ironi Nes-Ziona in Nes Ziyona in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hapoel Kfar Saba will play on the road against the league's leader Ironi Nes-Ziona (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

Kiryat Tivon will face higher ranked Ironi Ramat Gan (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Hapoel Kazrin - Hod Hasharon 80-90

The game in Kazrin was also quite interesting. Third ranked Hod Hasharon (16-5) played at the court of 8th ranked Hapoel Kazrin (10-11). Hod Hasharon defeated Hapoel Kazrin 90-80 on Tuesday. The game was mostly controlled by Hod Hasharon. Hapoel Kazrin managed to win second period 25-23. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.

Hod Hasharon will meet at home Elitzur Ramla (#9) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game.
