Laboral Kutxa vs Lietuvos Rytas by Robert
Lietuvos Rytas is a season dissapointment. After first great win against Panathinaikos they started to lose. They lost all 6 game in a row. Before the Euroleague season start every Lithuanian was sure that Lietuvos Rytas will go further than Zalgiris. However, reality punched Rytas in the face. It seems that they got decent roster with Gecevicius, who actually made a reborn this season, Seibutis, Cook, Songaila... Sadly, they haven't managed play good... Anyway, I still believe in this team. After Rytas lost Cook, they signed Zabian Dowdell - great athletic point guard with awesome offensive skills.
Laboral, at the other hand, will be without Nocioni. They will fight for crucial win that would let them go to the next round. Spaniards are clear favourites in this game.
To my mind, today we will see a high scoring game. Laboral has great players like Kelati, Huertel, Hamilton. They are all capable for scoring. In addition, we all know that Lietuvos Rytas is nothing but a offensive team. They do not play great defence.
I expect here a shootout. Over is high for this game but should be scored.
Andres Nocioni is still out and also missed the last Spanish League game.
Rimantas Kaukenas left the team after a temporary contract.
Adam Hanga has been activated by the club. It could be his debut this season.
Fabien Causeur is out indefintely due to a renal condition that needs further medical tests.
Eimantas Bendzius is still out indefinitely for Lietuvos Rytas.
Point guard Omar Cook is out due to injury.
The team signed Zab Dowdell this week and he will probably make his debut.
