The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most surprising game was the first loss of undefeated U-Mobitelco (4-1) in Cluj on Sunday night. Hosts were defeated by tenth ranked Ploiesti (3-2) in overtime 103-96. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of U-Mobitelco. U-Mobitelco was tied after three quarters and then recorded another tie at the end of regular time. They were eventually defeated in overtime 11-18s. Ploiesti shot the lights out from three sinking 12 long-distance shots on high 52.2 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. 31 personal fouls committed by U-Mobitelco helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American guard Darius Hargrove (193-82, college: Virginia Union) orchestrated the victory by scoring 21 points and 6 assists. The former international center Catalin Burlacu (210-77, agency: Court Side) contributed with 18 points and 4 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Ploiesti's coach Vladimir Arnautovic used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American guard Derek Wright (180-86, college: Austin Peay St.) answered with 24 points, 9 assists and 4 steals (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) for U-Mobitelco. Defending champion moved-up to sixth place, which they share with 4 other teams. U-Mobitelco at the other side keeps the second position with one game lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Ploiesti is looking forward to face higher ranked Oradea (#3) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. U-Mobitelco will play against the league's leader Gaz Metan in Medias and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 5: Gaz Metan beat Rovinari on the road 73-59. Pitesti destroyed Miercurea Ciuc on its own court 88-67. Giurgiu unfortunately lost to Targu Mures in a road game 70-84. Winless Farul Const. recorded a loss to Craiova at home 68-85. CSU Sibiu crushed Dinamo B. on the opponent's court 89-58.

Pitesti - Farul Const. 96-74

Rather expected game when bottom-ranked Farul Const. (0-6) was smashed on the road by thirteenth ranked Pitesti (3-3) 96-74 on Wednesday. The game without a history. Pitesti led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to Farul Const.'s 46. Pitesti forced 21 Farul Const. turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Farul Const.'s players. Croatian guard Pankracije Barac (196-81, agency: Court Side) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points and 4 assists. American-New Zealand forward Marcel Jones (203-85, college: Oregon St.) contributed with 10 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Pitesti's coach Tudor Costescu felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Marquis Mathis (200, college: W.Florida) answered with 14 points and 8 rebounds and the other American import guard Jeremi Booth (195-87, college: Appalachian St.) added 19 points in the effort for Farul Const.Five Pitesti and four Farul Const. players scored in double figures. Pitesti moved-up to eleventh place. Newly promoted Farul Const. still closes the standings with six games lost.

Miercurea Ciuc - Gaz Metan 86-109

Very predictable result when sixth ranked Gaz Metan (5-1) rolled over on the road bottom-ranked Miercurea Ciuc (0-6) 109-86 on Wednesday. The game without a history. Gaz Metan led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They shot 65.6 percent from the field and made 20-of-26 free shots (76.9 percent) during the game. American-Puerto Rican guard Paul Graham (192-85, college: Florida Atlantic, agency: Beo Basket) orchestrated the victory by scoring 19 points and 6 assists.

Croatian forward Franko Filipovic (203-87) answered with 22 points and American forward Zach Henifin (195-88, college: W.Washington) added 16 points and 4 steals (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) in the effort for Miercurea Ciuc. Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Gaz Metan keeps a position of league leader. Loser Miercurea Ciuc still closes the standings with six games lost. Gaz Metan will face U-Mobitelco (#5) in Cluj in the next round. Miercurea Ciuc will play at home against CS Dinamo Bucuresti (#14) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
