The Take

The best scoring team in the competition, Avtodor Saratov (4-2), hosts Beisktas Sompo Japan Istanbul (3-3) for the first of three Group F games on Wednesday. Newcomer Avtodor beat Besiktas 79-103 five weeks ago in Istanbul, and is the only team that posts more than 90 points per contest through six rounds (90.3). Nonetheless, in its two home games so far, Avtodor has one win and one defeat. Besiktas has lost its last two games by an average of 17.5 points. Next, Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (2-4) and Gound 6 co-MVP Ksistof Lavrinovic take on visiting Szolnoki Olaj (2-4). Rytas looks to build on the momentum of its victory last week in what was new head coach Aurimas Jasilionis's debut on the bench. No team distributes the ball better (19.7 assists per game), makes more steals (9.0) or forces more turnovers (18.3) than Rytas. Meanwhile, Szolnoki has the Eurocup's second-highest turnover rate, 16.5 per game. PAOK Thessaloniki (2-4) hosts group leader Zenit St. Petersburg (5-1) which can clinch a Last 32 spot with a victory. PAOK has lost four of its last five games, while the visitors are perfect 3-0 on the road so far.

Quotes Head Coaches

JASILIONIS, AURIMAS
Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius
"It will be a strong and combative match. As you have seen in the first two matches, I am the interim coach, so there is no stress in the team.The match will certainly be passionate for me. Their game has changed and now Olaj team itself emphasizes that it is ready and will seek victory in Vilnius."
POR, PETER
Szolnoki Olaj
"It is gonna be a crucial game for both teams, the winner will take a huge step towards qualification. Lietuvos Rytas already proved they are a very well organized and strong team, we faced that in Szolnok where they beat us. They showed improvement as they defeated Besiktas away in the last round but we are in a good run as well winning our last two matches at home."

Players

KAVALIAUSKAS, ANTANAS
Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius
"Now we are learning new defensive elements, so we need to work on that during training. The opponents have some good players, so we need to do our best to defend against them."
WITTMANN, KRISZTIAN
Szolnoki Olaj
"We expect Vilnius to play hard and in a bit of different way as they changed their coach recently. We found our rhythm and style during the last couple of games so we go to Lithuania confident. It will be a very important match regarding the qualification for the next round, we try to win but it is so difficult away from our gym."

Szolnoki Olaj claims maiden road win in Vilnius

Szolnoki Olaj held off Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius 98-99 to climb into a tie for third place in Group E. Szolnoki won its this straight game – and first on the road – to improve to 3-4. The loss dropped Rytas to 2-5, though its 24-point victory over Szolnoki in Round 2 leaves the potential head-to-head tiebreaker with Rytas. The visitors scored the first 10 points of the game and led by as many as 15 points in the third quarter. Nicolas Laprovittola keyed a late run to get the hosts within 1, but ran out of time. Strahinja Milosevic paced Szolnoki with 22 points, David Vojvoda shot 5 for 6 from downtown in scoring 20 points, Kyryl Natyazhko tallied 17 points and 7 rebounds and Krisztian Wittmann recorded 15 points and 4 steals. Laprovittola finished with 26 points and 7 assists, Gediminas Orelik scored 19, Marius Runkauskas made 4 of 5 threes for 15 points, Arturas Gudaitis added 14 and Deividas Gailius had 12 in defeat.

Szolnoki came out to a red-hot start; Aaron Craft started things with a three-pointer and Vojvoda’s three capped a 0-10 opening run. After an early timeout, Laprovittola got Rytas on the scoreboard, but Milosevic added a three for an 11-point Szolnoki lead. Julius Jucikas scored twice for Rytas, but Szolnoki had an answer to nearly every basket. A Laprovittola three made it 11-19 and threes by Gailius – with another by Wittmann in between – got the hosts within 7. A second Wittmann triple restored a double-digit difference before Arturas Gudaitis ended the first quarter at 23-31. Natyazhko scored the first 5 points of the second quarter to boost the visitors’ lead to 13. Runkauskas drew Rytas within 28-37 and before long Orelik and Laprovittola rallied the hosts to 34-39. Vojvoda connected twice from downtown over the next two minutes and Akos Keller added another triple to make it 39-49. Orelik halved the difference by scoring the next 5 points, but Milosevic and Vojvoda – the latter with his fourth three-pointer – gave Szolnoki a 45-54 halftime lead.

Free throws by Gailius helped Rytas get closer and an Orelink triple brought the hosts to 54-58. But in two minutes, Szolnoki was up by 11 after Natyazhko’s basket-plus-foul. Milosevic further extended the lead to 57-72 with a free throw with a little more than two minutes left in the third quarter. An 8-0 blitz in the last minute of the quarter that featured threes by Runkauskas and Laprovittola drew Rytas within 70-76. Triples by Natyazhko and Oleksandr Lypovyy helped Szolnoki establish a 76-84 cushion, however that nearly disappeared after Runkauskas hit his fourth three-pointer and Laprovittola added free throws. Vojvoda’s next three made it 81-87 with five minutes remaining, however Ksistof Lavrinovic and Laprovittola had the crowd on its feet with buckets to get within 2. Milosevic scored the next 4 points for a 6-point lead with two minutes remaining. It was 88-92 entering the final minute after a basket by Gudaitis and despite free throws by Peter Kovacs and Wittmann, Rytas got threes from Orelik and Laprovittola. Thelate rally saw Rytas twice come within 1 thanks to Laprovittola, but ultimately Rytas ran out of time.
