So was Elton Brown the main reason? (the difference maker)

It's hard to say. Whenever he played he was very dominant on the offensive end, almost point per minute, and helped them finish 1st in the league.
Against Maccabi in the finals he finished with 6 pts and 7 reb in 21 min, which is ok but he wasn't nearly as important as Tucker or Simmons.
Overall in his half season in Holon he was brought of the bench for 15-20 minutes in which he was unstopable in the low-post but very bad on D.
