    Thnx for the link mate. As I understood Rock is leading 43:30 after 2qtr? wow

    p.s. maybe someone from Latvia or anyone else could provide a link for Valmiera-Zalgiris game, which starts after half an hour, cause probably BBL netcasting won't be available again 9shame on them)

    Yeap, odds were 7,0-7,3 for Valmiera. And tomorrow Žalgiris plays vs ASK in Riga. It's interesting, what odds will be then.

    Žalgiris loss wasn't so unexpected while Žalgiris is outliving financial crisis, but Rytas realy surprised.

    Can you tell us more about this financial crisis and how does it affect Zalgiris performance? Are players not getting paid?

    Žalgiris didn't get the money from municipality of Kaunas which they promised to give, so the pays are being late. Žalgiris players were about to strike and don't play this game, but acorrding to media M. Brown persuaded others to remain professional and to play.

    Yes, players didn't get any money this season yet. It's mostly because of Kaunas' municipality, which is one of Zalgiris' shareholders and should've remittance money for Zalgiris, but they didn't do that till now. F*cking bureaucracy... Zalgiris' players even were thinking don't travel to Valmiera and boycott the game, but M.Brown persuaded other teammmates and finally they've decided to go and play.
    As far as I know from the inside of the club, situation like that won't last long, cause 2 big foreign companies might become sponsors of Zalgiris, negotiations is in final phases now. But about money from municipality it's hard to talk now, looks like they finally decided to give Zalgiris 5mln LTL, but another problem is when these money Zalgiris will get in their account

    Yup, it's inside information. Still, don't know the names of the companies, but I was told few days ago about that. It wasn't told directly to me, but these were words from one person from Zalgiris management, a very well known person

    No, he has wrist inflammation (maybe this word is right, cause I'm not good at medical terms) and almost didn't practise last week. Also Maciulis is not 100% healthy (was injured in a game vs Kalev) and also missed some practises last week, but he has to play, cause we don't have enough players to choose from

    ASK Riga 88:70 Valmiera

    Just came home from game, fantastic emotions! Great win by ASK, but I gotta say that Žalgiris didn't look too good... BTW at middle of game there was brawl between Woods and ASK. It started after Woods pushed Kalve from back, then ASK centers Grafs and Šundov started to protect teammate and that's it. It seemed that Woods hit Grafs in face, although pretty easy, and they both were ejected.

    Willie Deane was dressed for game, but he didn't play, he just warmed up with team and sat on bench all game.

    Little bit later I'll post video (most likely there will be included brawl)
