Hapoel Jerusalem Team News

Aleksandar Dzikic’s team did not show everything they can do during this playoff series. They only showed their magnificent talent in the first match, in the first quarter of the match, where they built a 20-point advantage, which eventually brought them victory in the first match. In the rest of both games, they were in a subordinate position. A lot of nervousness on their part and indiscipline in the attack. What made the difference in the first match was certainly the defense, because the Hapoel players are very aggressive and play hard. In the first match, the judging criteria were quite different than in the second match. Hapoel and AEK players were allowed to play a lot tighter and with more contact, which made the difference. While in the second match, less contact was allowed, which disturbed Hapoel’s concept of the game.

Hapoel’s main player Zach Hankins was completely cut off and scored only two points in two matches. AEK players as soon as Hankins gets the ball near the basket send him to the shooting line, where this great center does very poorly and shoots below 40%. The defenders of Hapoel play in a very fast rhythm. In the first match, Speedy Smith proved to be the best scorer, while in the second match, Randolph led Hapoel in terms of points.

AEK Team News

The AEK team continued their great game from Jerusalem in Athens, and after a slow start to the match, they smashed and outplayed the Hapoel team. Lemar led his team in points and made a key difference, but still, Akil Mitchel did a key job in this match, as he ensured safety in the jump, but also locked Hankins.

AEK has a larger base of better-quality domestic players who make a difference. Experience is on their side. During the season, they signed Pierre Oriola, who, along with Vlado Jankovic, brings great width both in the jump and in shooting from the outside. A bad second match for AEK was played by Kenny Williams, who scored only two points and is otherwise the best scorer of the team from Athens.

A big problem for AEK is the non-play of Janis Strelnieks, who was brought in to be the leader of this team and to bring the necessary experience, however, he has been out of action for almost a month and will not be able to help his team in the most important match of the season.

Hapoel Jerusalem vs AEK Prediction

The second match between these two teams was full of tension both on the field and in the stands, and we expect that this match will be a smaller number of points, but quite even. Although Hapoel is the favorite, we decided on a bigger limit on AEK, but also on a smaller value.
