Deividas
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.
