Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem's five-game winning streak stopped last night after the reds lost to Zenit St Petersburg 81-101. The game took place in Russia part of the Eurocup's Top 16 3rd round. Amar'e Stoudemire led the team with 22 points and Tarence Kinsey added 17 points. Watch the highlights:

Coach Pianigiani spoke after the game: "In the first half we let Zenit score in very different ways as we were late on pick-and-roll situations. We started the second half with less energy and if any team lets Zenit play in such way, they can score a lot versus any opponent. "

The two teams will meet again next week on Tuesday at Pais Arena and a victory by Hapoel can secure the ticket to the next stage.
