Anuzis
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in NKL.

The game between third ranked Olimpas (23-10) and eighteenth ranked Nafta Universitetas (6-27) was the most important one in the last round on Thursday night. Olimpas was defeated by Nafta Universitetas in a tough game in Klaipeda 83-91. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Olimpas. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 26-17. But Olimpas won third quarter 26-22. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. 26 personal fouls committed by Olimpas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for point guard Deividas Anuzis (181-92) who led his team to a victory with 28 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Forward Donatas Norkus (196-90) contributed with 13 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. Forward Julius Kazakauskas (197-90) answered with 18 points and 9 rebounds for Olimpas. Nafta Universitetas moved-up to seventeenth place, which they share with Gargzdai. Newly promoted Olimpas keeps the third position with ten games lost. Nafta Universitetas is looking forward to face Gargzdai-Bremena (#17) at home in the next round. Olimpas will play against Zalgiris-Sabonio (#7) in Kaunas and is hoping to win this game.
NKL top team - Mazeikiai (26-7) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed fifteenth ranked Ezerunas-Karys (10-23) in Moletai 86-55. Rokas Giedraitis (198-92) stepped up and scored 22 points and 6 rebounds for the winners and Eigirdas Zukauskas chipped in 12 points and 5 rebounds. The best for the losing side was forward Raimundas Ambrulaitis (199-82) with 13 points and 8 rebounds. Ezerunas-Karys' coach Mindaugas Kildisius gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Mazeikiai maintains first place with 26-7 record. Ezerunas-Karys lost third consecutive game. They keep the fifteenth position with 23 games lost. They share it with Silute. Mazeikiai will play against Triobet (#5) in Jonava in the next round. Ezerunas-Karys will play on the road against Delikatesas (#13) in Joniskis and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Sakiai was also quite interesting. 6th ranked Statyba (20-13) played at the court of eighth ranked Zanavykas (20-13). Zanavykas managed to secure a 8-point victory 74-66 on Friday. Edgaras Stanionis nailed 20 points and 4 assists for the winning side. Zanavykas' coach Giedrius Zibenas used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Tadas Rinkunas came up with 21 points for Statyba in the defeat. Zanavykas moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Zalgiris-Sabonio and Statyba. Zanavykas will meet at home Birstono (#14) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Statyba will play against the league's second-placed Dzukija (#2) in Alytus and hope to secure a win.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 33: Suduva-Mantinga beat Perlas-MRU on the road 79-71. Meresta won against Delikatesas on its own court 80-67. Radviliskis managed to outperform Silute in a road game 92-85. Triobet managed to beat Birstono at home 86-76. Zalgiris-Sabonio was defeated by Dzukija on the opponent's court 85-71.


Perlas-MRU - Suduva-Mantinga 71-79

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked Suduva-Mantinga (22-11) beat 11th ranked Perlas-MRU (14-19) in Vilnius 79-71 on Friday. Perlas-MRU was trailing by 3 points at halftime but managed to get 8-point lead after three quarters before a 25-9 charge of Suduva-Mantinga, which allowed them to win the game. Forward Marius Valukonis (198-88) nailed 28 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winning side and guard Zilvinas Kuklierius (180-85) accounted for 25 points and 6 rebounds. Suduva-Mantinga's coach Gintautas Zibuda used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Power forward Mantas Virbalas (203-88) came up with 19 points and 8 rebounds and American guard Keyron Sheard (188-86, college: Chattanooga) added 17 points and 7 rebounds respectively for Perlas-MRU in the defeat. Four Perlas-MRU players scored in double figures. Suduva-Mantinga maintains fourth place with 22-11 record, which they share with Triobet. Perlas-MRU at the other side dropped to the twelfth position with 19 games lost. Suduva-Mantinga will meet at home Meresta (#10) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Perlas-MRU will play against Radviliskis and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Meresta - Delikatesas 80-67

Rather expected game when 13th ranked Delikatesas (13-20) lost to tenth ranked Meresta (16-17) in Pakruojis 67-80 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by Meresta. Delikatesas managed to win fourth quarter 16-13. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Meresta shot 60.9 percent from the field. Meresta had a 31-12 advantage in offensive rebounds. It was a great shooting night for Meresta especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 55.0 percentage. Center Julius Jucikas (205-89) nailed a double-double by scoring 20 points and 11 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line) for the winning side and guard Tomas Gaidamavicius (191-82) accounted for 17 points and 10 assists. Four Meresta players scored in double figures. Meresta's coach Dainius Bertulis used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Guard Aivaras Kvedaravicius (184-88) came up with 13 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line) and swingman Zilvinas Petraitis (194-88) added 17 points respectively for Delikatesas in the defeat. Meresta maintains tenth place with 16-17 record. Delikatesas at the other side keeps the thirteenth position with 20 games lost. Meresta will meet higher ranked Suduva-Mantinga (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Delikatesas will play against Ezerunas-Karys (#15) in Moletai and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Silute - Radviliskis 85-92

Rather predictable result when twelfth ranked Radviliskis (14-18) won against on the road 16th ranked Silute (10-23) 92-85 on Friday. The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 10-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 92-85. Forward Vaidas Trepocka (200-80, agency: Court Side) nailed 24 points and 6 rebounds for the winning side and guard Vitalis Pancerevas (185-87, college: Weatherford JC) accounted for 23 points and 5 assists. American point guard Dustin Heiman (180-86, college: Abil.Christian) came up with 15 points and 5 assists and guard Evaldas Saulys (193-93) added 16 points and 6 rebounds respectively for Silute in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Radviliskis have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to eleventh place. Silute at the other side dropped to the fifteenth position with 23 games lost. They share it with Ezerunas-Karys. Radviliskis will meet at home Perlas-MRU (#12) in the next round. Silute will play against S.Marciulionio in Vilnius and hope to secure a win.

Zanavykas - Statyba 74-66

The game in Sakiai was also quite interesting. 6th ranked Statyba (20-13) played at the court of eighth ranked Zanavykas (20-13). Zanavykas managed to secure a 8-point victory 74-66 on Friday. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Statyba won third quarter 18-9. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Guard Edgaras Stanionis (193-88) nailed 20 points and 4 assists for the winning side and center Vilius Sumskis (213-84, agency: Interperformances) accounted for 18 points and 9 rebounds. Zanavykas' coach Giedrius Zibenas used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Swingman Tadas Rinkunas (195-91) came up with 21 points and forward Karolis Brusokas (200-91) added 15 points and 5 rebounds respectively for Statyba in the defeat. Zanavykas moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Zalgiris-Sabonio and Statyba. Zanavykas will meet at home Birstono (#14) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Statyba will play against the league's second-placed Dzukija (#2) in Alytus and hope to secure a win.

Triobet - Birstono 86-76

Not a big story in a game when 14th ranked Birstono (12-21) lost to fifth ranked Triobet (22-11) in Jonava 76-86 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by Triobet. Birstono managed to win third quarter 24-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Triobet won last quarter 24-15. They made 17-of-22 free shots (77.3 percent) during the game. Forward Martynas Linkevicius (197-85) nailed a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds for the winning side and forward Henrikas Vorotnikovas (203-90) accounted for 15 points and 7 rebounds. Four Triobet players scored in double figures. Simas Raupys (195-94) came up with 22 points and 8 rebounds and Donatas Sabeckis added 13 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists respectively for Birstono in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Triobet have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Suduva-Mantinga. Birstono lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth position with 21 games lost. Triobet will meet league's leader Mazeikiai on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
