The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games.

NKL round 14 caused change at the leadership position. Fifth defeat of league's leader Mazeikiai (10-5) against seventh ranked Olimpas (9-5) 104-72 was the most important game of the last round. Olimpas made 17-of-21 free shots (81.0 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. Forward Audrius Maneikis (203-84, college: Motlow St. CC) orchestrated the victory by scoring 25 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Forward Julius Kazakauskas (197-90) contributed with 23 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Olimpas' coach Alidas Zukauskas felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Swingman Vytautas Pikalavicius (196-90) replied with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds for Mazeikiai. Olimpas have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Mazeikiai at the other side dropped to the second position with five games lost. They share it with Meresta. They were replaced at the leadership position by Dzukija. Mazeikiai will play next round against Perlas-MRU trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Olimpas will try to continue on its current victory against fifteenth ranked Radviliskis on the road.
The game had a very big importance for third-ranked Dzukija as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Dzukija smashed 13th ranked Delikatesas in Alytus 101-82. American guard Bryan Harrison (188-84, college: Georgia Coll., agency: Global Sports Plaza) had a triple-double by scoring 14 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Giedrius Kurtinaitis chipped in 26 points during the contest.

Very important is a road loss of second ranked Meresta (10-5) against eleventh ranked Perlas-MRU (7-7) on Saturday night. Visiting Meresta was defeated by Perlas-MRU in a tough game in Vilnius 81-90. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Meresta. Zydrunas Kelys notched 19 points and 8 assists to lead the effort.

Perlas-MRU will meet league's second-placed Mazeikiai on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
