That was a ridiculous basket by Adam Ariel.

Adam Ariel scored a pretty incredible, off-balance, 3-pointer at the buzzer to hand Maccabi Rishon a 100 – 97 win over Hapoel Jerusalem and the ticket to the Israeli Winner League Final.

Ariel had just 1.1 seconds after receiving the inbounds pass to take the shot. Even though he almost lost the ball, he managed to drain the bucket.

He had 2-9 3-pointers before the game-winner.

Ariel finished with 11 points while D’Angelo Harrison (21 points, eight rebounds) and Zach Hankins (20 points) led Maccabi in scoring. Jeremy Pargo dropped a game-high 32 points and James Feldeine notched 18 points for Hapoel Jerusalem that came back from down 21 in the third period but couldn’t translate the turnaround to a win.

Maccabi Rishon will face the winner of the Maccabi Tel Aviv – Hapoel Gilboa Galil in the Final held Tuesday (28/7).
