Jamar Diggs
The most exciting game of round 26 in the LKL took place in Utena. This derby game ended with only two-point defeat on the road of second-ranked Lietkabelis (18-8) to sixth ranked Juventus (15-11) 74-72 on Sunday evening. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Lietkabelis won fourth quarter 21-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Juventus made 17-of-22 free shots (77.3 percent) during the game. 25 personal fouls committed by Lietkabelis helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American point guard Jamar Diggs (188-88, college: Wofford, agency: Octagon Europe) scored 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and power forward Vaidas Cepukaitis (207-89, agency: Interperformances) chipped in 14 points during the contest. The former international guard Mindaugas Lukauskis (198-79) responded with 16 points. Lietkabelis' coach Kazys Maksvytis tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Juventus moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Neptunas. Lietkabelis at the other side keeps the second position with eight games lost. They share it with Lietuvos rytas. Juventus is looking forward to face league's leader Zalgiris in Kaunas in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Lietkabelis will play at home against Nevezis and is hoping to win this game.
LKL top team - Zalgiris (23-3) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat fifth ranked Vytautas (14-12) in Prienai 81-70. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Vytautas. International guard Edgaras Ulanovas (197-92) notched 15 points and 7 rebounds to lead the effort and Paulius Jankunas supported him with 12 points. Zalgiris' coach Sarunas Jasikevicius used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 20 points and 9 rebounds by power forward Regimantas Miniotas (206-96) did not help to save the game for Vytautas. Defending champion maintains first position with 23-3 record. Vytautas at the other side dropped to the sixth place with 12 games lost. Zalgiris will play against Juventus (#5) in Utena in the next round. Vytautas will play at home against Dzukija and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Ninth-ranked Nevezis (6-20) gave a tough game to fourth ranked Neptunas (15-11) in Kedainiai on Sunday. The visitors from Klaipeda managed to secure only two-point victory 72-70. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Mindaugas Girdziunas who scored 21 points. Jermaine Love-Roberts produced 10 points and 6 assists for the hosts. Neptunas have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 15-11 record, which they share with Juventus. Loser Nevezis keeps the ninth place with 20 games lost. Neptunas will meet bottom-ranked Siauliai (#10) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Nevezis will play against the league's second-placed Lietkabelis in Panevezys and hope to secure a win.

In the last two games of round 26 bottom-ranked Siauliai lost to P.Zvaigzdes on the opponent's court 74-85. Lietuvos rytas managed to outperform Dzukija in a home game 76-72.

Ninth-ranked Nevezis (6-20) gave a tough game to fourth ranked Neptunas (15-11) in Kedainiai on Sunday. The visitors from Klaipeda managed to secure only two-point victory 72-70. However their fans expected much easier game. The guests trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 23-19 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game.

P.Zvaigzdes - Siauliai 85-74

Rather expected game in Pasvalys where 10th ranked Siauliai (3-23) was defeated by seventh ranked P.Zvaigzdes (11-15) 85-74 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by P.Zvaigzdes. Siauliai managed to win third quarter 26-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. P.Zvaigzdes looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. The best player for the winners was Osvaldas Olisevicius (200-93) who scored 18 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

Lietuvos rytas - Dzukija 76-72

Very predictable result in Vilnius where third ranked Lietuvos rytas (18-8) defeated 8th ranked Dzukija (7-19) 76-72 on Saturday. However just four-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts trailed by 1 point after three quarters before their 22-17 charge, which allowed them to win the game. The best player for the winners was American-Georgian point guard Corey Fisher (186-88, college: Villanova) who scored 17 points and 4 assists. International power forward Arturas Gudaitis (211-93) chipped in 16 points and 7 rebounds. Lietuvos rytas' coach Rimas Kurtinaitis used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Russian center Anatoly Kashirov (215-87) produced 14 points and 8 rebounds and forward Paulius Morkeliunas (202-85, college: LIU Brooklyn, agency: Octagon Europe) added 16 points and 7 rebounds respectively for the guests. Lietuvos rytas moved-up to second place, which they share with Lietkabelis. Loser Dzukija keeps the eighth position with 19 games lost. Lietuvos rytas will meet at home P.Zvaigzdes (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Dzukija will play against Vytautas in Prienai and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
