Unbelievable. At least, "Žalgiris" had to have +9, now it's 48-42 during the halftime. Unfreakingbelievable.
20 more minutes to play. If "Žalgiris" will keep the quality of the play (though they didn't do anything extraordinarily, just good execution of the Šaras' game plan) - a W would be good for the final standings of Kaunas team. We'll see.
Good game, two good teams playing hard and smart.


Yeah, I am watching the game. De Colo and Rodriguez aren't doing that great.

Impressive win by "Žalgiris". All game in control, sometimes even just dominating. Smothering defense, smart offense.

ALL HAIL TO ŠARAS!!! Was a true leader and a very smart player, now he is becoming one of the best coaches. A little bit psychotic, speaks during the games like proper language is prohibited ;). I just hope, that his health will withstand such outburst of self-imposed constant emotional pressure.

Life is good in Kaunas. Maybe Final 4, maybe another title, as it was in 99'. Unexpected for the most, but not for the insiders of bball. We'll see ;)

"Greens" defense is just too much. Good scouting, good preparation, excellent coaching during the game.

Spanoulis got the all-time EuroLeague assists record:

Spanoulis becomes EuroLeague assists king

Vassilis Spanoulis added another historic accomplishment in a glittering career that is already full of them by becoming the EuroLeague assist king on Friday. The Olympiacos Piraeus star surpassed the total of assists made by his compatriot and former teammate Dimitris Diamantidis.

Spanoulis entered the game needing 4 assists to capture the crown and delivered the record-breaking assist on a kick-out pass for a three-pointer by Vangelis Mantzaris with 10 seconds to go in the first quarter. In doing so, Spanoulis set the record despite playing six games fewer than Diamantidis needed.

Good game so far by the "Žalgiris". 44-33 after the 2. Very good defense, solid rebounding (20-9), patient, efficient execution on the offense. OK brothers, 20 more minutes of composure and concentration. Don't let this one to slip away.

Tavares was horrible in the first quarter, Zalgiris completely exploited him. Wonder if he plays in second half at all.

I know its kinda OT, but i put up Euroleague's former NBA players' stats, and I thought i would share. Are you interested in any of these names, and think they could make a return? Any observations from these stats (listed from highest scorer to lowest)

Man i hate Mike James. He is the biggest ballhog in the Euroleague history(even bigger than Shved IMO)... When they were laying Efes he almost f**ked up the whole game when he didn't give the ball out of his hands in the last 4 minutes, and then he hit the game winner. And Euroleague has him 1st in the MVP race...
I actually really like the Milano team(out of James).

I think that De Colo, Toko Shengelia, Vesely and Brandon Davies could get some minutes on a NBA team. And Melli, who is one of my favourite players, could have a same role as Kleber has on the Mavs

I havent watched Milan, but statistically Gudaitis is their best player it seems. Its quite accomplishment to have such a good basic statline, yet have 15 PER, James needs to lay of some shots thats for damn sure.

What surprised me is Calathes advanced numbers, man is he terrible scorer, even Rubio seemed to be better. Basically 9 assists in EL game, but TS% below 40 still, ouch.

Gudaitis is, next to Milutinov and Vesely a top3 center in the league right now, if you ask me.

If Nick the birck could hit something from distance he would be in the NBA now. And he also has the team built around his passing so taht's why he has that huge assist number
