The Regular Season in NKL just ended. The round was exceptionally exciting as three games ended with a tiny margin. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most important game in the last round took place in Kaunas between third ranked Olimpas (23-11) and seventh ranked Zalgiris-Sabonio (21-13) on Saturday night. Olimpas was crushed by Zalgiris-Sabonio on the road 94-71. The game was mostly controlled by Zalgiris-Sabonio. Olimpas managed to win fourth quarter 22-15.
