Although Maks&Moorits had managed to tie it all up at 13-13, that was the last time they had Pieno Zvaigzdes in sight, as the Pasvalys club pulled away slowly, but surely.
Having finished the first quarter, with a 23-17 advantage, the home side picked up the pace in the second quarter, which they won 28-13, increasing the margin to 21 points (51-30) at the halftime break.
Pieno Zvaigzdes weren’t having a particularly good night shooting the ball from three-point range, making 11-of-35 attempts, but they compensated for it by shooting 74% from inside the arc.
Ingus Bankevics blew up for a game-high 23 points, with Darrick Leonard and Paulius Sorokas chipping in with 11 points each in a blow-out win.
Maks&Moorits guard Miguel Ortega finished with 21 points, Kristjan Evart scored 14 points, while Viljar Veski added 11 points in a losing effort.
