Nevezis put up quite the fight against Pieno Zvaigzdes, as they mounted a late comeback but ultimately fell just a tad short, losing 84-87 on the road.
Having won the third quarter 31-20, the hosts looked solid with a double-digit advantage for the most part of the final quarter. However, Lester Medford Jr. scored six points in a row, including an and-one three-pointer, cutting the deficit to just two points.
Nevertheless, Pasvalys converted on their free-throws and earned their tenth victory, improving their record to 10-16. The loss sees Nevezis drop to 6-20, as they currently stand just above Vytautas.

Lietkabelis had a tougher time against Juventus than many might have expected, as they barely got out with an 88-83 win. Credit has to be given to the visitors, who gave the Panevezys side a run for their money despite having just eight able-bodied players on their bench.
