MVP. Vitali Liutych made headlines this week with a monstrous performance in his second Triobet BBL game, as he dropped 47 points and tore down 8 rebounds in Kalev/Cramo‘s first-leg win over Barons kvartals. The all-time scoring record earns him the Player of the Week award and bragging rights, possibly for quite a while.
RUN. For nearly three full quarters, it was an intense battle, but Barons kvartals were shattered by Liutych‘s Kalev/Cramo late in the third, as the Estonians went on to win big, 100-81. Relive the record-breaking game with DELFI TV‘s highlights:
BUZZERBEATER. Jermaine Love did it again. Not even a week after his last-second drive against Jekabpils that won them the series, Love hit another buzzerbeater. The shot over two defenders won them the game against University of Tartu, as they now look to secure home court.
BLOWOUT. Not too many people could have predicted that Vytautas would be as dominant, as they were in the first game of the series against Valmiera/ORDO. The Lithuanians ran off in the second quarter and comfortably coasted to the finish line, winning 102-71.
SIXTH MAN. Any coach would be happy to see their bench players putting up a performance like Egidijus Dimsa did, especially in a game as big as this. Dimsa enjoyed an outstanding evening, scoring 28 points and tallying 11 rebounds in Pasvalys‘ 9-point win against Liepaja/Triobet.
