The hosts trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 5-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 79-63. Barons kvartals outrebounded Jurmala 40-29 including a 30-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a good game for American forward Tyler Cain (203-88, college: S.Dakota) who led his team to a victory with 11 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Forward Maris Gulbis (202-85, agency: Players Group) contributed with 13 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Forward Janis Dilevka (200-88) replied with 13 points and 6 rebounds for Jurmala. Jurmala's coach Jevgenijs Kosuskins rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Barons kvartals (13-7) have an impressive six-game winning streak.
