After dropping a game in Prienai a few days ago, Zalgiris returned to winning ways with an 82-68 victory over Juventus at home at the Zalgirio Arena on Thursday.

The Arturas Milaknis-led defending Betsafe LKL champions sunk the visitors from Utena in the third and fourth quarters after a pretty evenly-matched first half.

For Juventus, Tomas Dimsa and Martinas Geben shared a team-high mark of 13 points, Dovis Bickauskis scored 11 points, while Arvydas Siksnius had 10.
