On Tuesday night, the Lions faced the Magen David Warriors. The Lions played an excellent first half, especially on the defensive end, and went into the half up by one. The Lions could not buy a bucket in the third quarter and quickly fell behind. By the time the fourth quarter came around the Lions found themselves down by ten points. But thanks to some big shot making by Willy Kluger (10 points) and Akiva (10 ponts) Gottlieb the Lions were able to cut the lead to three. With forty seconds left, Eli Lipner (17 points) was fouled on a three pointer and hit all three free throws to tie the game. After a defensive stop the game went into overtime. In overtime, the Lions did not execute from the line and could not stop Magen David on the other end. The final score was 58-53 in favor of MDY.
