After sitting out the last two games because of injury, Tarence Kinsey was back on the court tonight and he showcased one of his best performances of his season. Kinsey scored 33 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem's 93-80 win over Hapoel Tel Aviv in the 31st round of the Israeli league. Jerusalem sits in 4th place with a 17-14 record and there are only two more game until the regular season ends. On Thursday, Maccabi Haifa will arrive to Pais Arena to face the Reds.

Pianigiani sent Timor, Dyson, Kinsey, Eliyahu and Stoudemire as his starting five but Hapoel showed poor 1st quarter with low energy that gave the visitors the lead. The 2nd quarter did not change much and the visitors had an easy time getting to Hapoel's basket. The half ended with 51 points to Hapoel Tel Aviv and only at the 3rd quarter Hapoel's defense started to show up which caused the lead to change. Kinsey continued to score from any position on the court, Jerrells contributed coulple three-pointers and Howell's 12 points and 12 rebounds gave Hapoel the win.
