We Want to Win as many games as possible, says Vitautas Sarakauskas - Dec 31, 2013

Vytautas
Sarakauskas
Vytautas Sarakauskas (203-C-82), a key contributor at Neptunas Klaipeda (Lithuania), gave an interview to VTB-League.com ahead of the game with CSKA (Russia), which his team lost by 77-90 (OT).

The 31-year-old forward talked about the thrilling game against Astana earlier this season, named his teams top shooter, and discussed Kazys Maksvtysis coaching philosophy, which may give Neptunas Klaipeda a chance against reigning League champions CSKA.

- Neptunas Klaipeda is playing its 2nd season in the League. How has the team improved compared to last season?
- Our roster hasnt changed significantly, but we gained invaluable experience in the VTB United League. Now its our calling card thanks to this weve become stronger than we were last season. I hope that it will be reflected in our results soon.

- The first half of the season is practically over. Which Neptunas Klaipeda game made the biggest impression?
- Personally, I remember the game in Kazakhstan vs. Astana. I had my nose broken (laughs). Overall, it was really an important win for us.

- Neptunas Klaipeda took the decisive lead only in the final minutes. Before that, the team had lost several close games in the League and Eurocup. Whats the reason for that?
- Practically any close game, when it comes down to one shot, is a lottery. I can only say that we didnt get lucky. The games against Tsmoki-Minsk, Krasnye Krylia and Krasny Oktyabr could have gone our way. In the game against Astana, luck was on our side I hope that it doesnt leave us anymore.

- You carried the team in that game by knocking down almost all of your shots
- Thats our strength in any given game, any player can be the leader. On the whole, we have Marius Runkauskas and Martynas Mazeika theyve been the best players at Neptunas Klaipeda for several years.

- On the court, you get the feeling that any Neptunas Klaipeda player can score from long range. Its a team full of perimeter shooters! Who, in your opinion, is the most accurate?
- I think our best shooter is Runkauskas. Last season he even won a 3-point contest, which was held during the Lithuanian League all-star game. But you know for yourself that its different in a game. One day youre on fire, but you can start to miss at any time. Its impossible to know.

- What does your head coach Kazys Maksvytis emphasize most? Whats his coaching philosophy?
- Quick offense, 3-pointers those are our strengths and we need to exploit them. Its nothing complicated you need to stretch the defense, drive to the basket and kick out to the shooters. Thats how we play.

- After Neptunas Klaipeda failed to advance to the next round of the Eurocup, the team can focus its attention on the VTB United League. What goals do you have?
- Its all pretty simple we want to win as many games as possible. We dont have a goal, for example, to take 6th or 8th place. Were going to battle, and, like I said before, gain experience. Thats the foundation, after all, for future wins.
