Hapoel Jerusalem beat Ironi Nahariya 92 – 89 in the 2020 Israeli State Cup Final to lift the trophy for the second straight year and sixth time overall in the history of the club.

J’Covan Brown was named MVP after finishing with 26 points, six rebounds, and five assists. James Feldeine (23 points, five rebounds) and TaShawn Thomas (11 points, 13 rebounds) also led the charge for Hapoel Jerusalem. Thomas also scored the win-sealing basket with less than a second remaining, after an offensive rebound following 0/2 free throws by Tamir Blatt.

Dominic Waters (26 points, seven assists) and Jerel McNeal (20 points, seven assists, six rebounds) stood out from the losing side that came back from down 77 – 68 in the mid of the fourth period to make it a thriller in crunch time.
