Triobet BBL Weekly Review: Volume 19

The season is heading towards its’ culmination, as we closed out the Quarterfinals stage this week. Only four game this week, so it’s not that hard to pinpoint all the highlights in one spot, as we always do with the Triobet BBL Weekly Review, this time already at its’ 19th Volume.

 

MVP. Traditionally, we start off with the highlight individual performance – our Triobet BBL Player of the Week. Dominykas Milka of TU/Rock was impressive in his team’s road victory against Nevezis, as he scored 26 points (20 in the first half) and tore down 7 rebounds. Milka was lethal from mid-range and converted with consistency on the offensive end.

AWAY GAMES. TU/Rock were defeated at home with a buzzer-beater from Jermaine Love, but managed to turn things around on the road, winning comfortably by 14 points in the return leg.

HEROICS. Most would have written off Barons kvartals after their 19-point loss in the first leg of the series against Kalev/Cramo, but the Latvians managed to turn the return leg into a thriller. Barons were dominant three quarters through and even managed to tie the series up, going ahead by 19, but they just ran out of gas in the final fourth.

ADVANTAGE. Vytautas should be happy they did their work early and came away with the huge victory in Prienai, as Valmiera showed up to fight encouraged by their fans. The Latvians won the game 74-64, but it was by far not enough to overcome the 31-point deficit from the game prior.

EASY. The Quarterfinals were not as lopsided as some might have thought, as only Pieno Zvaigzdes managed to take home two victories. After a 10-point win on the road, the Lithuanians backed it up with a 16-point win at home. All the other teams split their series at 1-1.
