There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in Division A.

The most important game in the last round took place in Timisoara between second ranked Timisoara (12-4) and fourth ranked Targu Mures (12-4) on Thursday night. Timisoara was defeated by Targu Mures at home 77-67. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Timisoara. Worth to mention a great performance of Lithuanian guard Gediminas Navickas (180-84) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and the former international center Dan Paltinisanu (208-79, agency: Court Side) who added 15 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side Bosnian point guard Zlatko Jovanovic (181-84, agency: Beo Basket) responded with 26 points. Targu Mures have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Timisoara and Ploiesti. Targu Mures is looking forward to face Ploiesti (#4) at home in the next round. Timisoara will play against CSM Bucuresti and is hoping to win this game.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Timisoara. Second ranked host Timisoara (12-4) defeated one of their biggest challengers Ploiesti (12-4) 103-91. The winners were led by Bosnian point guard Zlatko Jovanovic (181-84, agency: Beo Basket) who scored that evening 26 points and 9 assists (made all of his ten free throws !!!) and Dominique Archie supported him with 20 points and 7 rebounds. Even 17 points and 8 rebounds by the former international center Catalin Burlacu (210-77, agency: Court Side) did not help to save the game for Ploiesti. Timisoara have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 12-4 record having just three points less than leader Oradea, which they share with Targu Mures and Ploiesti. Timisoara will play against CSM Bucuresti (#5) on the road in the next round. Ploiesti will play against Targu Mures and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Division A top team - Oradea (15-1) added another victory to their record on Wednesday. This time they beat eleventh ranked Pitesti (7-9) 81-74. Nemanja Maric fired 16 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Pankracije Barac produced 18 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for lost side. Oradea have an impressive 11-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 15-1 record. Pitesti at the other side keeps the eleventh place with nine games lost. Oradea will meet at home bottom-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (#16) in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Pitesti will play against Craiova (#6) and hope to secure a win.
Bottom-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (0-16) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 16th consecutive match to seventh ranked U-Mobitelco (10-6) 79-58. It was a very good performance for Derek Wright who helped to win the game recording 14 points, 7 assists and 6 steals. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. U-Mobitelco maintains seventh position with 10-6 record. CS Dinamo Bucuresti at the other side still closes the standings. U-Mobitelco's next round opponent will be CSU Sibiu (#10) at home. CS Dinamo Bucuresti will play against the league's leader Oradea (#1) having rather not much hope for a victory.
Fourth ranked Ploiesti (12-4) crushed at home 15th ranked Farul Const. (1-15) by 30 points 97-67, which is the biggest margin this round on Wednesday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Vladimir Tica who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds. Ploiesti's coach Vladimir Arnautovic felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion moved-up to second place, which they share with Timisoara and Targu Mures. Farul Const. lost fourth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the fifteenth position with 15 games lost. Ploiesti will face Targu Mures (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Farul Const. will play against Gaz Metan (#8) in Medias.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 16: Timba Timis. lost to Craiova on the opponent's court 75-87. Gaz Metan managed to outperform Giurgiu in a home game 73-60. CSM Bucuresti managed to beat Miercurea Ciuc on the road 77-69. CSU Sibiu defeated Rovinari on its own court 73-68.

Dinamo B. - U.Mobitel.CN 58-79

Bottom-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (0-16) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 16th consecutive match to seventh ranked U-Mobitelco (10-6) 79-58.

Craiova - Timba Timis. 87-75

Very expected game when 13th ranked Timba Timosoara (4-12) was defeated on the road by sixth ranked Craiova (11-5) 87-75 on Tuesday. The hosts trailed by 10 points after first quarter, but they stormed back winning next two quarters and won the game by 12 points. Timba Timosoara was plagued by 26 personal fouls down the stretch.

Gaz Metan - Giurgiu 73-60

Rather predictable result in Medias where eighth ranked Gaz Metan (9-7) defeated 12th ranked Giurgiu (5-11) 73-60 on Wednesday. The game without a history. Gaz Metan led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Gaz Metan outrebounded Giurgiu 45-32 including 31 on the defensive glass. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international Titus Nicoara (203-88, agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 18 points and 14 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) and American point guard Kyle Shiloh (191-85, college: Nevada) who added 15 points and 5 rebounds during the contest.

Miercurea Ciuc - CSM Bucuresti 69-77

Not a big story in a game when 14th ranked Miercurea Ciuc (3-13) was defeated at home by fifth ranked CSM Bucuresti (11-5) 77-69 on Wednesday.
