Kavaliauskas
The Regular Season in LKL is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 3 rounds.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Kaunas. First ranked Zalgiris faced 3rd placed Lietkabelis. Host Zalgiris (30-3) smashed guests from Panevezys (23-10) 84-62. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Lietkabelis. The game without a history. Zalgiris led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 50 of its points in the paint compared to Lietkabelis' 22. Zalgiris forced 20 Lietkabelis turnovers. It was a great shooting night for Zalgiris especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 60.0 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. The best player for the winners was the former international center Antanas Kavaliauskas (208-84, college: Texas A&M, agency: Interperformances) who scored 15 points (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). International guard Edgaras Ulanovas (197-92) chipped in 11 points and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Australian swingman Ben Madgen (193-85, college: Augusta) who recorded 18 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Zalgiris have an impressive series of eight victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 30-3 record. Lietkabelis at the other side keeps the third position with ten games lost. Zalgiris are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Siauliai (#10) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Lietkabelis will play against the league's second-placed Lietuvos rytas (#2) in Vilnius and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Prienai was also worth to mention about. 4th placed Neptunas (18-15) played at the court of sixth ranked Vytautas (17-16). Vytautas managed to secure a 7-point victory 96-89. It was a good game for the former international guard Tomas Delininkaitis (190-82) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 10 assists (went 13 for 13 at the free throw line !!!). Regimantas Miniotas contributed with 12 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American power forward Jerai Grant (203-89, college: Clemson) answered with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 11 rebounds for Neptunas. Neptunas' coach Dainius Adomaitis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending champion moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Juventus. Neptunas at the other side keeps the fourth position with 15 games lost. Vytautas will play against Nevezis (#9) in Kedainiai in the next round. Neptunas will play on the road against P.Zvaigzdes (#7) in Pasvalys and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Kedainiai. Local Nevezis (6-27) was outscored by third ranked Lietuvos rytas (24-9) 92-56 on Monday night. Arturas Gudaitis stepped up and scored 14 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Lietuvos rytas' coach Rimas Kurtinaitis felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was Karolis Petrukonis with 17 points. Lietuvos rytas moved-up to second place. Nevezis lost their eighth game in a row. They keep the ninth position with 27 games lost. They share it with Siauliai. Lietuvos rytas will meet at home Lietkabelis (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Nevezis will play against Vytautas (#5) in Prienai and hope to secure a win.

In the last two games of round 33 Siauliai was defeated by Dzukija in Alytus 69-51. Juventus was beaten by P.Zvaigzdes at home 91-97.
The best stats of 33th round was 12 points by Brock Motum of Zalgiris.

Dzukija - Siauliai 69-51

The game between closely ranked teams ended with 9th ranked Siauliai's (6-27) road loss to eighth ranked Dzukija (9-24) 51-69 on Monday. The game was mostly controlled by Dzukija. Siauliai managed to win third quarter 19-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Siauliai 54-40 including a 22-8 advantage in offensive rebounds. Center Karolis Guscikas (205-92, agency: Octagon Europe) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 12 rebounds for the winners and Spanish guard Alejandro Hernandez (189-90) chipped in 14 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Dzukija's coach Andrej Urlep used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was forward Donatas Sabeckis (197-92) with a double-double by scoring 14 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists and swingman Tomas Lekunas (201-93) scored 13 points and 7 rebounds. Dzukija maintains eighth place with 9-24 record. Loser Siauliai dropped to the bottom. They share the position with Nevezis. Dzukija will meet higher ranked Juventus (#6) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Siauliai will play against the league's leader Zalgiris (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

Vytautas - Neptunas 96-89

The game in Prienai was also worth to mention about. 4th placed Neptunas (18-15) played at the court of sixth ranked Vytautas (17-16). Vytautas managed to secure a 7-point victory 96-89. Neptunas was ahead by 4 points after three quarters before a 27-16 charge of Vytautas, which allowed them to win the game. They made 23-of-29 charity shots (79.3 percent) during the game. Neptunas was plagued by 25 personal fouls down the stretch. It was a good game for the former international guard Tomas Delininkaitis (190-82) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 10 assists (went 13 for 13 at the free throw line !!!). Power forward Regimantas Miniotas (206-96) contributed with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds for the winners.

Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Neptunas' coach Dainius Adomaitis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending champion moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Juventus. Neptunas at the other side keeps the fourth position with 15 games lost. Vytautas will play against Nevezis (#9) in Kedainiai in the next round. Neptunas will play on the road against P.Zvaigzdes (#7) in Pasvalys and hopes to get back on the winning track.
