Robertas Javtokas said goodbye to basketball in the best way possible, as Zalgiris took down Lietkabelis 73-68 in Kaunas. As he mentioned, the Lithuanian great will be retiring after the end of this season. This is Zalgiris‘ 7th back to back Lithuanian championship and the 30th overall!
After a tie in the first quarter (15-15 after 10’), it was obvious that it would be a very tight game between the two teams. With a 13-2 run the hosts managed to lead 42-33 at halftime, yet it wasn’t over!
With less than one minute remaining in the final period, Lietkabelis trimmed the deficit to 3 points and pushed hard in defense. The reigning champions still held their ground and managed to defend their title.
Lukas Lekavicius paved the way for the winners, scoring 23 points.
