Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Lithuanians who are currently playing abroad.


Martynas Pocius
Martynas Pocius
   #1. This week's number one is an international shooting guard Martynas Pocius (196-86, agency: Interperformances, college: Duke, currently plays in Spain). He was the major contributor in a Real Madrid's victory against the closely-ranked Gescrap BB (5-2) 98-84 in the Spanish ACB in Sunday night's game. Pocius recorded 18 points in a mere 18 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Real Madrid (7-0) is placed first in the ACB. So far his team won all seven games in the Regular Season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Pocius averages: 7.9ppg, 1.7rpg, 3FGP: 62.5%(10-16) and FT: 87.5% in the seven games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Lithuanian senior national team.

Linas Kleiza
Linas Kleiza
   #2. Second place goes to an international small forward Linas Kleiza (203-85, college: Missouri, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. Kleiza could not help the Toronto Raptors (2-6) in their last game on Monday. Despite his very good performance the Toronto Raptors were defeated in a triple overtime (!!!) 140-133 on the road by the Utah Jazz. Kleiza scored 20 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Kleiza has relatively good stats this year: 10.0ppg, 4.3rpg, 2FGP: 35.3%, 3FGP: 33.3%. He is in the roster of the Lithuanian senior national team.

Mantas Kalnietis
Mantas Kalnietis
   #3. The Lithuanian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Mantas Kalnietis (195-86, also represented by Interperformances, currently plays in Russia). Kalnietis led Lokomotiv to an easy victory against the league leader Enisey Krasnoyarsk crushing them 93-64 in the Russian PBL on Sunday night. He had a double-double by scoring 13 points and making 11 passes. Kalnietis also added 4 rebounds in 28 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lokomotiv Kuban (3-3) is placed second in the PBL. Kalnietis is ranked sixth on the list of the best passers in the league with 3.0apg. This year his other stats are: 6.4ppg, 3.0rpg, 2FGP: 44.0%, 3FGP: 23.1% and FT: 14.3% in the five games. Kalnietis is also a member of the Lithuanian senior national team.

   #4. Forward Donatas Zavackas (203-80, college: Pittsburgh, currently plays in VTB United League) led his Latvian team VEF Riga to a victory over the leader Zalgiris (4-1) 77-72 in the VTB United League in Sunday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Zavackas scored 17 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. VEF Riga (3-2) is placed third in group B. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Zavackas' overall stats this season are: 8.6ppg, 5.0rpg and 1.4apg. He used to play for the Lithuanian U20 national team back in 2000.

Simas Jasaitis
Simas Jasaitis
   #5. International small forward Simas Jasaitis (202-82, currently plays in Eurocup) is a teammate of previously mentioned Mantas Kalnietis. But that was another game of his team in Eurocup which we would like to mention. Jasaitis contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Trefl Sopot (0-2) crushing them 99-79. He scored 14 points in 28 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lokomotiv Kuban (2-0) is placed second in the Eurocup. It's Jasaitis' first season with the team. This year Jasaitis has relatively solid stats: 13.5ppg and 3.5rpg in the two games. He plays currently for the Lithuanian national team.

Jonas Valanciunas
Jonas Valanciunas
   #6. Center Jonas Valanciunas (211-92, currently plays in NBA) is a teammate of previously mentioned Linas Kleiza. However that was another game of his team in NBA which brought him to that list. Valanciunas contributed to a 2-point Toronto Raptors' victory against the Indiana Pacers (3-6) 74-72. He scored 9 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. The Toronto Raptors have not so impressive 2-6 record this season. They ended the series of four consecutive loses. Valanciunas has reliable stats this year: 8.4ppg, 5.3rpg and 1.1apg.

Dimsa also added 4 rebounds in 28 minutes. There are only four games left until the end of the EuroChallenge Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial.

Michailis Anisimovas

He scored 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Budivelnyk Kyiv (1-1) is placed second in the Eurocup.
