Rain Raadik
Parnu - Lietkabelis 101-75

The game was mostly controlled by KK Parnu. Lietkabelis was better in third quarter 25-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. KK Parnu dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Lietkabelis' 32 and made 20-of-26 charity shots (76.9 percent) during the game. KK Parnu players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. Center Rain Raadik (208-89) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds. Lithuanian guard Augustas Peciukevicius (192-91) contributed with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Five KK Parnu players scored in double figures. Forward Vaidotas Volkus (202-85, college: Redlands CC) replied with 27 points and 8 rebounds and Arnas Butkevicius (196-92) added 9 points and 5 rebounds in the effort for Lietkabelis. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
