Gilboa won game one setting up a win and you’re in game two at their home court in Gan Ner. However, a power outage occurred with Gilboa ahead 60-55 with 6:58 left in the fourth quarter forcing the teams to wait for close to an hour until the lights were restored but at that point Holon refused to continue the game leading to the technical defeat.

Game two will take place in Haifa at the Romema Arena tipping off at 21:15 as game 3 if necessary would be held on Sunday night in Holon at 21:00.

Should the series be settled Saturday night the best of three finals against Maccabi Tel Aviv, who punched their ticket earlier in the week will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If the Gilboa vs Holon series heads to the third game, the finals will be held on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
