After getting the road win by 12 points the last week, Hapoel Jerusalem didn’t leave any chance to Neptunas, beating the Lithuanian squad by 20 (84-64) at home and qualifying for the Basketball Champions League quarterfinals with ease.

After getting the Israeli citizenship, Amar’e Stoudamire celebrated on the court with 15 points, TaShawn Thomas had 13 and the duo of James Feldeine and Da’Sean Butler added 11 points each.

Hapoel once again proved that they are title contenders and despite making just five out of 27 threes, they didn’t felt any pressure from the guests who made just three threes out of 21 attempts and shot just 50% in free throws (13/26).

Jerai Grant with 14 points tried his best for the losing side, but Neptunas simply didn’t have the quality of Hapoel.
