As we are halfway through the Betsafe-LKL regular season, together with Scorestars we present you the most important events of last week action in the league.

Sunday was an eventful day for Lithuanian fans. The second Vilnius derby of the season took place in Avia Solutions Group arena. Despite a slow start, Rytas Vilnius managed to have a 19-0 spurt to take control of the game and eventually capture a convincing 89-72 win against their counterpart of the city, Wolves Vilnius.

On the same day the ambitious Uniclub Casino – Juventus Utena came back from a 14-point deficit against 7bet-Lietkabelis Panevėžys. In a choatic last minute it seemed like the home team might come out with a victory but Scoochie Smith dished an assist to Šarūnas Beniušis, whose dunk gave his team 1-point lead with 1 second to go. Deividas Sirvydis' shot was off the mark and the away team celebrated a win that lifted them to the third place in the standings, while 7bet-Lietkabelis is now only fifth.
