Nebojsa Joksimovic - Hemofarm Stada

Rytas now has the chance to become the first team to win a seconcd Eurocup title, as won the competition in 2005. Meanwhile, Hemofarm had a bitter end to an otherwise fantastic Eurocup season. Marijonas Petravicius paced the winners with 23 points on 11-for-15 two-pointers. Mindaugas Lukauskis added 15, including an incredible go-ahead triple while Chuck Eidson had 13, 6 rebounds and 7 assists for L. Rytas. Nebojsa Joksimovic led Hemofarm with a season-high 24 points. Stefan Markovic and Milan Macvan helped Hemofarm to stay in the game early but a 0-7 run that Steponas Babrauskas capped with free throws allowed L. Rytas to get a double-digit lead, 14-24, after 10 minutes. A put-back layup by Donatas Zavackas gave L. Rytas its biggest margin that far, 18-29. Joksimovic tried to change things for Hemofarm but Eidson and Petravicius stepped up to keep L. Rytas way ahead, 28-36, at halftime. Boris Savovic and Joksimovic struck from downtown in a 9-0 run that brought Hemofarm back to life, 47-49, at the end of the third quarter. Back-to-back triples by Joksimovic got Hemofarm even closer, 59-60, midway through the fourth period. Boban Marjanovic tied it at 63-63 but an incredible nine-meter turnaround three-pointer by Lukauskis and a layup by Petravicius sealed the outcome down the stretch. READ MORE
