The Regular Season in NKL is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 5 rounds.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Mazeikiai. First ranked Mazeikiai faced 4th placed Suduva-Mantinga. Host Mazeikiai (23-6) defeated guests from Marijampole (19-10) 87-73. The game was mostly controlled by Mazeikiai. Suduva-Mantinga managed to win fourth quarter 19-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Mazeikiai forced 19 Suduva-Mantinga turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. The best player for the winners was Rokas Giedraitis (198-92) who scored 35 points (!!!). Guard Modestas Sidlauskas (193-85) chipped in 10 points and 11 rebounds. Forward Marius Valukonis (198-88) produced 18 points and 7 rebounds for the guests. Suduva-Mantinga's coach Gintautas Zibuda rotated twelve players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Mazeikiai maintains first place with 23-6 record. Suduva-Mantinga at the other side keeps the fourth position with ten games lost. Mazeikiai are looking forward to face Radviliskis (#14) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Suduva-Mantinga will play against Delikatesas (#12) in Joniskis and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Vilnius, where higher ranked Zalgiris-Sabonio (17-12) was outleveled in a road game by eleventh ranked Perlas-MRU (13-16) 95-65. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Zalgiris-Sabonio. Power forward Mantas Virbalas (203-88) orchestrated the victory by scoring 15 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Antanas Udras contributed with 16 points and 9 rebounds (perfect from the field making all seven shots !!!) for the winners. Forward Marius Grigonis (198-94) answered with 11 points and 5 rebounds for Zalgiris-Sabonio. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Perlas-MRU maintains eleventh place with 13-16 record. Zalgiris-Sabonio at the other side dropped to the eighth position with 12 games lost. Perlas-MRU's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Vilnius to the arena Statyba.
An interesting game took place in Moletai, where higher ranked S.Marciulionio (16-14) lost to fifteenth ranked Ezerunas-Karys (9-20) in a road game 72-87 on Friday. Marius Kugauda stepped up and scored 15 points and 4 assists for the winners. Marius Pociukonis responded with 18 points and 5 assists. S.Marciulionio's coach Gintaras Kruckauskas tested ten players and allowed the starting five to rest. Ezerunas-Karys maintains fifteenth place with 9-20 record, which they share with Silute. Loser S.Marciulionio keeps the ninth position with 14 games lost. Ezerunas-Karys will meet bottom-ranked Nafta Universitetas (#18) in the next round. S.Marciulionio will play against Triobet (#5) in Jonava and hope to secure a win.
An interesting game took place in Gargzdai, where higher ranked S.Marciulionio (16-14) lost to seventeenth ranked Gargzdai-Bremena (6-24) in a road game 75-85. Dominikas Matutis nailed 22 points and 5 assists for the winning side. Gargzdai-Bremena maintains seventeenth place with 6-24 record. S.Marciulionio at the other side keeps the ninth position with 14 games lost. Gargzdai-Bremena's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Dzukija in Alytus and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
An interesting game took place in Jonava, where higher ranked Triobet (18-11) lost at home to fourteenth ranked Radviliskis (11-17) 89-93 on Friday. The best player for the winners was Antanas Montrimavicius who scored 14 points and 8 rebounds. Triobet's coach Kestutis Narusevicius tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Radviliskis maintains fourteenth place with 11-17 record. Loser Triobet dropped to the fifth position with 11 games lost. Radviliskis will face league's leader Mazeikiai at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Triobet will play against S.Marciulionio (#9) in Vilnius.

Other games of round 29 were very predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
