Lietuvos rytas - Juventus 75-76

The most exciting game of round 32 in the LKL took place in Vilnius.





This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of second-ranked Lietuvos rytas (23-9) to fifth ranked Juventus (17-15) 76-75 on Saturday evening.


It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Lietuvos rytas.


The guests trailed by 4 points after three quarters before their 28-23 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Juventus made 30-of-36 free shots (83.3 percent) during the game.


26 personal fouls committed by Lietuvos rytas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.


Worth to mention a great performance of American point guard Jamar Diggs, who helped to win the game recording 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists and guard Vytautas Sulskis, who added 15 points and 6 rebounds during the contest.


International power forward Arturas Gudaitis responded with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds and American forward Drew Gordon scored 15 points and 8 rebounds. Lietuvos rytas' coach Rimas Kurtinaitis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Juventus maintains fifth position with 17-15 record.


Lietuvos rytas at the other side keeps the second place with nine games lost. They share the position with Lietkabelis. Juventus are looking forward to face P.Zvaigzdes (#7) in Pasvalys in the next round. Lietuvos rytas will play on the road against Nevezis (#9) in Kedainiai and is hoping to win this game.
