The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Tbilisi: Dinamo Tbilisi (#1) and Olimpi (#7). Dinamo Tbilisi (15-0) crushed visiting Olimpi (4-10) by 18 points 82-64. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Olimpi. The game was mostly controlled by Dinamo Tbilisi. Olimpi managed to win third quarter 20-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Olimpi 41-25 including a 33-15 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a good game for the former international point guard Nodar Gogodze (191-94) who led his team to a victory with 17 points and 6 rebounds. Center Ilia Londaridze (205-89) contributed with 15 points and 6 rebounds (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) for the winners. Dinamo Tbilisi's coach used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
