Although Nate Robinson scored no less than 46 points in his first overseas playoffs game, Hapoel Tel Aviv succumbed against Hapoel Jerusalem, 97 – 99 in overtime.

With  his no less than epic efforts, the “Krypto-Nate” forced the extra period, but in the end, Hapoel Jerusalem won the day. The 46 points (shooting with 15/22 from the field, with 7/10 three-pointers) he dropped are the most in a playoffs game since Israeli basketball legend Doron Jamchy recorded 51 in 1985!

Eli Holman was the hero in the end for the winners since with a put-back basket, he helped the hosts make it 1-0 in the quarterfinal series against their opponents. Earl Rowland was the top scorer for the team from Tel Aviv with 16 points.
