The most surprising game was the first loss of undefeated Siauliai (4-1) at the home court on Monday night. Hosts were defeated by ninth ranked Nevezis (3-4) 78-71. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Siauliai. Siauliai was trailing by 11 points at halftime but managed to get 2-point lead after three quarters before a 22-13 charge of Nevezis, which allowed them to win the game. They also forced 20 Siauliai turnovers. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Tony Bishop (201-89, college: Texas St., agency: Stanislav Ryzhov) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds. The former international center Darius Silinskis (216-84, agency: Interperformances) contributed with 10 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Senegalese forward Papa Dia (208-87, college: SMU) replied with 20 points and 6 rebounds for Siauliai. Nevezis have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Pieno Zvaigzdes. Siauliai at the other side keeps the second position with one game lost. Nevezis is looking forward to face higher ranked Juventus (#3) in Utena in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Siauliai will play on the road against Neptunas in Klaipeda and is hoping to win this game.
Bottom-ranked Naglis Palangos is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their eighth consecutive match to eighth ranked Neptunas (3-3) 111-81. International forward Deividas Gailius (200-88) scored 21 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and Martynas Mazeika chipped in 17 points, 7 assists and 4 steals during the contest. Neptunas' coach Kazys Maksvytis felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Nigerian power forward Olasumbo Atoyebi (203-88, college: Elon) responded with 25 points and 6 rebounds. Neptunas moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Lietkabelis. Naglis Palangos at the other side still closes the standings with eight games lost. Neptunas will play against league's second-placed Siauliai at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Naglis Palangos will play against LSU-Baltai (#10) in Kaunas and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Pieno Zvaigzdes (3-4) and Lietkabelis (3-3), which took place in Panevezys. 6th ranked Pieno Zvaigzdes lost to ninth ranked Lietkabelis in a road game 73-87 on Thursday. Tauras Jogela notched 19 points and 6 rebounds to lead the effort. Even 22 points by Lukas Brazdauskis did not help to save the game for Pieno Zvaigzdes. Pieno Zvaigzdes' coach Nerijus Zabarauskas rotated ten players and allowed the starting five to rest. Lietkabelis moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Neptunas. Loser Pieno Zvaigzdes dropped to the eighth position with four games lost. They share it with Nevezis. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
The game between 6th ranked Pieno Zvaigzdes (3-4) and top-ranked Zalgiris (3-0) in Pasvalys ended with biggest points difference. Guests from Kaunas outscored Pieno Zvaigzdes 93-43. Ksistof Lavrinovic fired 16 points and 4 assists (perfect from the field making all seven shots !!!) for the winners. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Zalgiris have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Lietuvos rytas. Pieno Zvaigzdes at the other side dropped to the eighth position with four games lost. Zalgiris' next round opponent will be Lietuvos rytas (#4) in Vilnius.

In the last game of round 10 Sakalai was beaten by Juventus on the road 82-75.

Naglis Palangos - Neptunas 81-111

Bottom-ranked Naglis Palangos is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their eighth consecutive match to eighth ranked Neptunas (3-3) 111-81. It looked good early as Naglis Palangos took an 7-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Neptunas had a 36-16 second period charge getting the lead and Naglis Palangos was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 81-111. Neptunas dominated down low during the game scoring 86 of its points in the paint compared to Naglis Palangos' 58. Neptunas had a 23-11 advantage in offensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. International forward Deividas Gailius (200-88) scored 21 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and guard Martynas Mazeika (191-85, agency: Interperformances) chipped in 17 points, 7 assists and 4 steals during the contest. Five Neptunas players scored in double figures. Neptunas' coach Kazys Maksvytis felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Nigerian power forward Olasumbo Atoyebi (203-88, college: Elon) responded with 25 points and 6 rebounds and guard Mantas Mockevicius (189-93, college: Olney Central CC) scored 15 points and 5 rebounds. Neptunas moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Lietkabelis. Naglis Palangos at the other side still closes the standings with eight games lost.
