Lietuvos rytas - Dzukija 76-72

Very predictable result in Vilnius where third ranked Lietuvos rytas (18-8) defeated 8th ranked Dzukija (7-19) 76-72 on Saturday.





The hosts trailed by 1 point after three quarters before their 22-17 charge, which allowed them to win the game.


The best player for the winners was American-Georgian point guard Corey Fisher, who scored 17 points and 4 assists.


International power forward Arturas Gudaitis chipped in 16 points and 7 rebounds.


Lietuvos rytas' coach Rimas Kurtinaitis used a ten-player rotation in such tough game.


Russian center Anatoly Kashirov produced 14 points and 8 rebounds and forward Paulius Morkeliunas added 16 points and 7 rebounds respectively for the guests.


Lietuvos rytas moved-up to second place, which they share with Lietkabelis.


Loser Dzukija keeps the eighth position with 19 games lost. Lietuvos rytas will meet at home P.Zvaigzdes (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Dzukija will play against Vytautas in Prienai and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
