Marius Prekevicius - Siauliai Siauliai left things to be decided in the last game of the regular season in Group A as it defeated Guildford Heat on the road by 76-86 on Tuesday night. The win allows Siauliai to improve its record to 4-5 for a three-way tie in third place with Alba Berlin and KK Bosna who lost their games this week. On the other hand, the Heat drop to 0-9 and remain winless this season. The hosts managed to control the tempo of the game until the halftime break, but after that, Siauliai managed to pull away and get a vital win for its aspirations in the ULEB Cup. Donatas Zavackas was again the best scorer for the winners with 20 points, Marius Prekevicius tallied 16, Mantas Ruikis added 15 and Antonio Grant posted 14. For the Heat, Daniel Gilbert had 23 points, Elmer Harrison added 19 and Tony Dorsey had 12.

Donatas Zavackas' three soon made it 8-10 for Siauliai but Guildford Heat reacted. A collective effort in offense by the hosts allowed them to climb to a 20-14 edge after Daniel Gilbert's five straight points. The advantage for the hosts even climbed to double digits after 10 minutes, 25-15. In the second period however, Siauliai started to come back to life. A 0-9 burst capped by Marius Prekevicius put the guests back into the game and after that, another basket by him etied the game again after many minutes, 31-31. It was a last three-point play by Tony Dorsey that left the scoreboard on a tight 36-33 at the break. The first steps of the third quarter saw both teams remaining close to each other but when Siauliai managed to jump ahead by 47-52 they never looked back again. Despite Nerijus Karlikanovas' triple for the hosts, Prekevicius closed the third quarter with 54-60. The last quarter started with a 0-11 run for Siauliai that broke the game open. The Guildford Heat never surrendered, however, and Elmer Harrison tried to keep his team alive, but it was again a futile effort as Siauliai took a valuable win for the last week.
