Jamar Diggs
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 4 rounds.

The most exciting game of round 32 in the LKL took place in Vilnius. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of second-ranked Lietuvos rytas (23-9) to fifth ranked Juventus (17-15) 76-75 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Lietuvos rytas. The guests trailed by 4 points after three quarters before their 28-23 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Juventus made 30-of-36 free shots (83.3 percent) during the game. 26 personal fouls committed by Lietuvos rytas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American point guard Jamar Diggs (188-88, college: Wofford, agency: Octagon Europe) who helped to win the game recording 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists and guard Vytautas Sulskis (200-88, college: Youngstown St., agency: Octagon Europe) who added 15 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. International power forward Arturas Gudaitis (211-93) responded with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds. Lietuvos rytas' coach Rimas Kurtinaitis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Juventus maintains fifth position with 17-15 record. Lietuvos rytas at the other side keeps the second place with nine games lost. They share the position with Lietkabelis. Juventus are looking forward to face P.Zvaigzdes (#7) in Pasvalys in the next round. Lietuvos rytas will play on the road against Nevezis (#9) in Kedainiai and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Pasvalys. Seventh ranked P.Zvaigzdes (14-18) saved a 3-point victory at home edging 5th ranked Vytautas (16-16) 92-89 on Saturday evening. The winners were led by Osvaldas Olisevicius (200-93) who scored that evening 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists and Derrick Low supported him with 14 points, 11 assists and 4 steals. Even 18 points by the former international guard Tomas Delininkaitis (190-82) did not help to save the game for Vytautas. P.Zvaigzdes maintains seventh position with 14-18 record. Defending champion Vytautas dropped to the sixth place with 16 games lost. P.Zvaigzdes will play against higher ranked Juventus (#5) in Utena in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Vytautas will play at home against Neptunas and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Klaipeda. 4th ranked host Neptunas (18-14) lost to first ranked Zalgiris (29-3) 81-77. The best player for the winners was Paulius Jankunas who scored 26 points and 6 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Mindaugas Girdziunas produced 21 points and 4 assists for the hosts. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Zalgiris have an impressive seven-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 29-3 record. Loser Neptunas keeps the fourth place with 14 games lost. Zalgiris will meet at home league's second-placed Lietkabelis in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Neptunas will play against Vytautas in Prienai and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Siauliai managed to get the second consecutive victory. This time they won against ninth-ranked Nevezis 78-74. Donatas Sabeckis orchestrated the victory by scoring 11 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists and 4 steals. Siauliai (6-26) moved-up to ninth place, which they share with defeated Nevezis. Nevezis lost seventh consecutive game. Siauliai's next round opponent will be higher ranked Dzukija (#8) in Alytus and it may be quite challenging game.
Third ranked Lietkabelis (23-9) beat at home 8th ranked Dzukija (8-24) by 8 points 70-62, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Lorenzo Williams who helped to win the game recording 12 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Lietkabelis have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Lietuvos rytas. Dzukija lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with 24 games lost.
