Rytas started this season very promising, but 2last week were brought back to reality. They suffered a crushing defeat against Limoges, losing 4th quarter 7:24. It seemed everything went bad that evening. Lithuanians managed to miss 13 free throws. And had no answer to opponents perfect defence. Even player like Bendzius missed 3 free throws in a row. Might be that team was not ready psychologically, because they missed many easy layups and made a lot of mistakes. However, they recovered in local league defeating Dzukija 92:54. So maybe Rytas will regain trust in themselves and perform as they did against Lokomotiv.
Partizan currently at 1st place in the group with the two wins. However, their real challenge just begins, as they haven‘t yet faced any stronger cereal an away game. Also, Artiom Porokhouski is coming to his former team, so it should be interesting how he will perform because so far he is struggling to play as he did last season. However, Partizan is playing well in Eurocup but lost in the local cup so it might be difficult to motivate and focus playing an away game against a strong team. Because in this match it will be Lithuanians favourites, and they have already shown how can play when they trust themselves and show maximum concentration.
