Hapoel "Bank Yahav" Jerusalem tied the series against Ironi Nahariya on Monday night after winning 74-72. The Reds were with their back to the wall knowing that a loss will end their season. From the beginning they showed character and resilience and although a dramatic and tight finish, they came with the victory.

Hapoel showed great shooting percentage from deep again and broke a club record in the playoffs with 13 three-pointers made. The Reds enjoyed a great night by Tarence Kinsey and Curtis Jerrells who gave them a 13-point lead in the 3rd quarter but the local team managed to come back and even had the lead with two minutes left. But until the end, Pianigiani's team didn't allow Nahariya to score and successful free throws by Amar'e Stoudemire and Jermoe Dyson promised the win.

Watch the highlights: 

Game 5 will take place on Thursday night (9pm) at Pais Arena with the winner taking the last ticket to the Israeli league Final 4.

Boxscore: Jerrells 20, Kinsey 19, Dyson 9, Howell 6, Peterson, Timor and Stoudemire 5 points each.
