Khimki has many great players. Meanwhile Rytas depends on three players - Eidson, Lukauskis and Petravicius. Eidson wasn't in the best shape yesterday. Lukauskis either, despite hitting a crucial shot. Petravicius got his points but if he plays that way today then Mozgov will have a blocking party. Zavackas is probably the biggest disappointment in the Final Eight for Rytas. He scored only one 3pt shot so far.
I see Khimki winning this. But it won't be an easy game.

For the third time we will have two teams in Euroleague. It is a great achievement for Lithuanian basketball. We should have 2 guaranteed spots and that's been proven once again.
Khimki will have to root for Rytas in LKL because if they win it then logically Eurocupo winner's license should go to the finalist.

By the way, I am really happy that Rytas are in the Euroleague next year, I hope they will meet Maccabi in the Euroleague, and I even hope that Rytas will win against Maccabi - every time Maccabi lost to Rytas, Maccabi went up until the final of the Euroleague...

so I guess that if Rytas would win the LKL, the C-licence would become a wild-card for the Euroleague regular season. so Khimki should root for herself in the Russian-Suproleague, or pray that the Euroleague will give her the wild-card...

LOL. Even if I see this and I won't believe it. But I can expect just about anything from Lithuanians
