BBL Weekly Review: Volume 7

The Baltic Basketball League (BBL) presents its weekly review that will provide fans with the opportunity to quickly overlook all the main events and spectacular performances that took place in the league.

 

CRASHED. Barons kvartals’ 5-game winning streak came to an end with a horrendous performance against TU/Rock, as they were destroyed 102-66.

BENCH SCORING. A big part of TU/Rock’s success came from the bench, as their backups scored 62 of the team’s 102 points in their win against Barons.

HOME-COURT ADVANTAGE. Teams playing at home have won 58 of 86 (67%) games this season. Home-court advantage does matter!

FINISHING UP. Barsy Atyrau finished up the regular season early, as their two final games went in different directions. The Kazakhs ended up with a 5-7 record, securing an eighth-finals berth.

SHOOTING BLANKS. Gert Dorbek couldn’t get anything to fall against Caspiy. Despite the fact that he only managed to convert on 1 of 10 field goal attempts, Rock coasted to an easy victory against their foes.

Joakim Kjellbom continues his powerful BBL campaign with an impressive performance against Valmiera and ends up atop the weekly Top Five. The Swede collected 15 points and 13 rebounds in the Dolphins’ victory.

In a season that has been nothing close to spectacular, Fredrick Zambalist made a statement against Siauliai. The guard scored 28 points, had 5 assists and 5 rebounds. However, a poor performance a few days before pushes him back to the second spot.

David McClure had an efficient game against Barsy, as he collected 9 points, 7 rebounds and 18 ranking points.

Lithuanian forward Vytautas Sulskis was just as solid for Siauliai, as he added 15 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists to McClure’s totals.

Timo Eichfuss’ input helped TU/Rock to two easy victories. The Estonian averaged 15 points and 5 rebounds, leading to 17.5 ranking points.

Marek Doronin was also solid for the Estonian club, as he finishes up the Top Five with a 10.5 point and 6 rebound average.
