Jerrells
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 change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games.

Fourth defeat of league's leader Maccabi T-A (13-4) against fourth ranked Hapoel Jerusalem (11-7) 74-63 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Maccabi T-A. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 3 points at the halftime before their 45-31 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Hapoel Jerusalem dominated down low during the game scoring 48 of its points in the paint compared to Maccabi T-A's 28. It was a good game for American point guard Curtis Jerrells (185-87, college: Baylor, agency: Stealth Sport) who led his team to a victory with 20 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line). The other American import power forward Amare Stoudemire (208-82) contributed with 24 points and 6 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) for the winners. The former international Guy Pnini (200-83) replied with 17 points for Maccabi T-A. Hapoel Jerusalem keeps a position of league leader. Maccabi T-A at the other side dropped to the third place with four games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Hapoel J-M. Maccabi T-A will play next round against Maccabi K/G trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Hapoel Jerusalem will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Maccabi Haifa on the road.
The game in Nahariya was also worth to mention about. Sixth ranked Hapoel Eilat (10-8) played at the court of 8th ranked Ironi Nahariya (8-10). Hapoel Eilat managed to secure a 7-point victory 86-79. American players dominated the game. Forward Landon Milbourne (201-87, college: Maryland) scored 27 points to lead the charge for the winners and Will Daniels chipped in 15 points and 7 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) during the contest. The best for the losing side was power forward Yancy Gates (206-89, college: Cincinnati) with 20 points. Ironi Nahariya's coach Eric Elfasi rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Hapoel Eilat have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Ironi Nahariya at the other side keeps the eighth position with ten games lost. They share it with Maccabi Haifa. Hapoel Eilat will play against league's second-placed Hapoel Holon at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Ironi Nahariya will play against Hapoel Tel-Aviv (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Twelfth-ranked Maccabi K/G (3-15) used its home court advantage to challenge fourth ranked Bnei Hasharon (11-6) in Kiryat Gat on Monday. The visitors from Hod Hasharon managed to secure only one-point victory 80-79. However their fans expected much easier game. Taurean Green notched 19 points and 5 assists to lead the effort. Even 30 points, 8 rebounds and 4 blocks by Brandon Bowman did not help to save the game for Maccabi K/G. Bnei Hasharon maintains fourth position with 11-6 record. Maccabi K/G lost fourth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 15 games lost. Bnei Hasharon will meet at home Galil Gilboa (#10) in the next round where they are favorite. Maccabi K/G will play against Maccabi T-A and hope to secure a win.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Hapoel Tel-Aviv (9-9) and Galil Gilboa (7-11), which took place in Rosh Pina. Higher ranked Hapoel Tel-Aviv lost to tenth ranked Galil Gilboa in a road game 81-86. The best player for the winners was Murphy Holloway who had a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Newly promoted Galil Gilboa maintains tenth position with 7-11 record. Hapoel Tel-Aviv at the other side keeps the sixth place with nine games lost. Galil Gilboa's next round opponent will be higher ranked Bnei Hasharon (#4) in Hod Hasharon and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
The game between second ranked Hapoel Holon (13-5) and 5th ranked Maccabi Rishon (9-9) in Holon on Sunday ended with biggest points difference. Hapoel Holon beat guests from Rishon Le-Zion 92-77. It was a good game for Jordan Taylor who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 5 rebounds and 10 assists. Hapoel Holon's coach Dan Shamir used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Hapoel Holon have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 13-5 record having just two point less than leader Hapoel J-M. Defending champion Maccabi Rishon dropped to the sixth place with nine games lost. Hapoel Holon will face Hapoel Eilat (#5) on the road in the next round. Maccabi Rishon will play against Maccabi Ashdod and hope to win that game.

In the last game of round 18 Maccabi Haifa beat Maccabi Ashdod on the road 72-59.
