Lietuvos Rytas bests RETAbet to remain unbeaten at home

Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius won its third straight game in the 7DAYS EuroCup by defeating RETAbet Bilbao Basket 83-71 at Siemens Arena on Wednesday. Rytas improved to 3-3 in Group B, while RETAbet slipped to 2-4. The result also gave Rytas the potential head-to-head tiebreaker over RETAbet, which won the first meeting between the sides in Spain by 4. Rytas won by controlling the glass – it outrebounded RETAbet 39-23 – and with excellent outside shooting (9 of 19 from downtown, 47.4%). David Logan was 4 of 7 from downtown for 23 points plus 6 assists to lead the winners. Corey Fisher added 15 points, while Arturas Gudaitis posted 23 points, 16 rebounds and 2 blocks for the winners. Scott Bamforth paced RETAbet with 16 points, Michael Eric scored 13 and Axel Hervelle and Ivan Buva netted 10 points apiece.

Logan got Rytas going with a pair of threes to start the game. Tobias Borg drew RETAbet within 1, but the hosts then scored 8 straight points for a commanding 16-7 lead. Josh Akognon’s first basket gave Rytas a double-digit lead, which stood at 21-9 by the end of the quarter. Miha Lapornik sparked RETAbet at the start of the second quarter, however Fisher and Deividas Gailius combined for all of Rytas’s points in a 12-3 push that made it 33-19. The visitors used a 0-9 run in which Buva scored twice to get within 35-33. A Rokas Giedraitis triple put Rytas comfortable ahead en route to a 42-35 halftime lead. Bamforth connected from downtown to made it 45-42 and Borg later closed the gap to 2, but back-to-back threes by Logan put the hosts back in control. He scored 4 more points to give Rytas a 62-51 lead at the end of the quarter. The hosts scored the first 7 points of the fourth quarter to assume total control. The lead peaked at 75-55 and cruised the rest of the way.

Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius
"We controlled the game from the first minutes and I think that first quarter determined the outcome of the whole game. Our plan was to put pressure on Mumbru and Hervelle and we executed it well. We dominated by rebounding, shot well from the arc. Sometimes my players let themselves try some tricks to please the fans and because of that we made too many mistakes. That was dangerous, because Bilbao could punish us immediately with three pointers. I am happy that we won and now we have a good chance to advance to the next round of EuroCup."

"Lietuvos Rytas played better than us. At the end of the last quarter we fought strong, but they managed to keep the point difference. "
