The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Dinamo Tbilisi (#6) and MIA (#2). Dinamo Tbilisi (5-4) won against visiting MIA (7-2) 83-78. The hosts trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 25-15 charge, which allowed them to win the game. 24 personal fouls committed by MIA helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American forward Flynn Clayman (206-88, college: Cumberlands) fired 27 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Guard Beqa Chikviladze (195-91) chipped in 21 points. American center Kirk Archibeque (205-84, college: Fort Lewis) produced a double-double by scoring 16 points and 10 rebounds for lost side. Dinamo Tbilisi maintains sixth position with 5-4 record. MIA at the other side keeps the second place with two games lost. They share the position with Armia and Rustavi. Dinamo Tbilisi's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tbilisi to the arena STU.
Leader Olimpi delivered the eighth victory. This time they crushed bottom-ranked STU (0-9) 96-75 in Tbilisi.

Levan Fatsatsia contributed with 19 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Forward Giorgi Kvetenadze (201-90) replied with 15 points and 6 rebounds for STU. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Olimpi have a solid four-game winning streak.

Another interesting game was again a derby between two local teams from Tbilisi: Sokhumi (#10) and Samedicino-Academia (#9).
