7bet-Lietkabelis beats Wolves in 2OT thriller, Gargždai get their first win
The fifth week of Betsafe-LKL has passed and only two teams remain unbeaten. Yet three bottom teams are still in search for their first success of the season.
Rytas Vilnius (5/0) put up another amazing performance at home to beat M Basket-Delamode (0/5) - 90-54.
Two Eurocup teams gave the fans a game to remember on Saturday. 7bet-Lietkabelis Panevėžys (4/1) managed to come out on top after a 2OT battle against Wolves Vilnius (4/1) - 108-105. Another blow that Wolves absorbed came when Arturs Zagars suffered a knee injury.
On Sunday three matchups ended by three strong perforances of the home teams. Uniclub Casino – Juventus Utena (4/1) did not spare Šiauliai (1/4) - 88-68. Žalgiris Kaunas (5/0) gave CBet Jonava (4/1) their first loss of the season - 86-69. Neptūnas Klaipėda (2/3) went for an impressive offensive display to leave no chance to Pieno žvaigždės (0/5) - 112-87.
To close out the week two winless teams met in Klaipėda. Gargždai (1/4) went for a 28-12 fourth quarter to beat Nevėžis-Optibet Kėdainiai (0/5) to get their first win of the season – 97-84. Gargždai newcomer Nicholas Ward was a cheatcode as the big man scored 31 points on 12-19 shooting from the field. Jaylon Scott was 2 assists away from triple-double as he tallied 11 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out 8 assists.
