The most exciting game of round 5 in the LPB took place in Barreiro. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 7th ranked Galitos-Tley (1-4) to leader Vitoria SC (4-0) 87-84 on Sunday evening. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Galitos-Tley won third quarter 27-23. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Vitoria SC made 18-of-22 free shots (81.8 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was naturalized Cape Verdean guard Ivan Almeida (198-89, college: Stonehill, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) who had a double-double by scoring 35 points (!!!) and 12 rebounds. The former international forward Paulo Cunha (200-80) chipped in 14 points and 8 rebounds. American forward Perry Stevenson (206-87, college: Kentucky) produced a double-double by scoring 16 points, 13 rebounds and 4 blocks for the hosts. Vitoria SC have a solid series of four victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Benfica. Galitos-Tley lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the tenth place with four games lost. Vitoria SC is looking forward to face Ovarense (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Galitos-Tley will play against Fisica (#8) in Torres Vedras and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Undefeated leader Benfica delivered the fourth consecutive victory. This time they crushed 7th ranked Lusitania (1-3) 84-57. The former international forward Heshimu Evans (198-75, college: Kentucky) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points and 8 rebounds. LaceDarius Dunn contributed with 20 points for the winners. Benfica's coach Carlos Lisboa felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Forward Mohamed Camara (196-83) answered with 15 points and 7 rebounds for Lusitania. Benfica have a solid series of four victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 4-0 record, which they share with Vitoria SC. Lusitania lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with three games lost. They share it with Fisica and Sampaense. Benfica will play against Barcelos (#6) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Lusitania will play against Alges to get more than just one victory in their record.
Bottom-ranked Alges (0-4) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 78-61 loss to fourth ranked Academica (3-1) in Alges on Saturday evening. Arnette Hallman stepped up with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 16 rebounds for the winners. Josimar Cardoso responded with 17 points and 7 rebounds. Academica maintains fourth place with 3-1 record. Newly promoted Alges still closes the standings with four games lost. Academica will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Alges will play against Lusitania (#7) in Angra and hope to get finally their first victory.
The game in Funchal was also worth to mention about. 5th ranked Barcelos (2-3) played at the court of sixth ranked CAB Madeira (2-1). CAB Madeira did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 94-76. Jason Smith nailed 27 points for the winning side. CAB Madeira moved-up to fifth place. Barcelos at the other side dropped to the sixth position with three games lost. CAB Madeira's next round opponent will be Sampaense (#9) in Coimbra.
