Derek Needham chipped in with 12 points, Artsiom Parakhouski and D.J. Seeley collected 11 points each, while Mindaugas Girdziunas rounded out the double-digit scorers with 10 points for the visitors.

Meanwhile, Gytis Masiulis finished with a team-high 12 points for Neptunas, hitting the only three-pointer for the hosts, who combined for 1-of-20 shooting from beyond the arc. 

Deividas Gailius and Jerai Grant had 8 points each.
