    This Turkish team is excellent at killing the opponents game, it might be a closer game than people imagine. Lithuania is playing a good game with Lavrinović brothers on court, their contribution will decide the game.

    not agreed, Kalnietis is good but he's not a world class PG like Parker or what Jasikevicius used to be. We would still be having this discussion if he was in. Sometimes players are over exaggerated.

    I agree Kalnietis is a good PG but not a difference maker at all. Despite he is the unique quality (?) Lithuanian PG, everyone overreacted too much.

    What if we had Ersan Ilyasova, Enes Kanter, Kenan Sipahi and İlkan Karaman?

    Yes he is not tony parker,but if you watched our games closer (for example against australia) you would understand why he is so crusial for our team offence.We are playing this tournament without real PG and thats hurts our offence badly.Right now Kalnietis 2013,2014 is the most important player in our team.We can play without Kleiza,we can play without Valanciunas,but playing without kalnietis is the most dificult task especially when we were preparing playing with him...WE just dont have player to replace him,other position we are deeper its not that big deal,loosing our only PG is very big deal.With him we were winning against everybody in friendlys 12 of 12 this summer and than lost last 2 games.Thanks gods we have seibutis and smart coaching that trying to cover very big hole in Pg position.And yes he is difference maker in our national team..This lost most likely wont allow us to win medal this year. Kalnietis was our MVP in eurobasket2013 when all our best players played.

    And most importantly, Turkoglu. I would like to see him in Turkish NT.

    Maybe also Kutluay, Erdenay, Besok and Turkcan?

    As a Lith, of course you would . He'd screw up all the Turkish game plan and resistance alone.

    Kalnietis is more important to this current team than his actual level, also because he was with the team until the last moment, and I assume they were preparing to play with him all along the preparation phase. Suddenly he's gone, and no time left for Lithuania to figure out something workable... We knew since beginning what squad we'd have...

    But as surfer said, even with Kalnietis, we'd be having this discussion... I think Liths will win, but I'm praying for a repetition of 2006 WC. (and I do not mean being eliminated at quarters).

    Kalnietis would be much more important than your mentioned players for a FIBA game. Be it Lith or Turkey. And he is a difference maker these days for Lithuania. He peaked last 2 years and now is one of the best PGs in Europe. Besides, he's one of those who's playing at the different level for the NT. Last Eurobasket he was scoring 12 points (team hight), 5 assists (team hight) and 5 rebounds. And obviously is the motor of all the game. How many other European PGs do you know that can contribute this way for an elite NT?

    There's no overreaction at all. Kalnietis would bring NT to other level instantly. Besides, Lithuania also lacking a player who usually is playing much bigger role for the NT than Iliasova or Kanter. That's Kleiza.

    Lithuania as overall unite is still better than Turkey, but it can got either way easily.

    We had a very good offense in first quarter. Therefore win by 18-13.
    But our defence wasn't good. I hope we will better in defense.

    Brick city in the 2nd half by both teams. D. Lavrinovic on fire early in the quarter.

    These laid bricks from Turkey (statistically) means they will start falling at some point.

    Turkey's offense has completely dried up. Their defense is keeping the score close, though.
