Jurmala not fazed by Betsafe/Liepaja

LIEPAJA - In one of few Saturday nights with BBL action, Jurmala had unsurprisingly no trouble battling against Betsafe/Liepaja, as they coasted to a 66-50 win in hostile territory.


Jurmala made their intentions known in the first quarter. While it was a close fight in the opening 7 minutes, the visitors ran away at the end of the quarter, jumping ahead by eight points after ten minutes of basketball.

The second quarter was just as rocky for Betsafe/Liepaja, as they were held to just one point in six minutes of the second period, allowing Jurmala to drift away by 19.

The margin hovered around the 15 point mark right until the end of the game, without any major runs from either side.

It was a very all-around performance from Jurmala, as no player entered double-digits in scoring, but Denis Krestinin, Ervins Jonats, Ugis Pinete, Ivars Zvigurs and Haralds Karlis all had 9 points apiece.

Roberts Krastins was the lead scorer for Liepaja, as he dropped 17. Karlis Lasmanis added another 12 to the tally.
