Zalgiris Kaunas made an impressive come-back and stunned Fenerbahce (76-79), handing the Turks their third straight loss.

Fenerbahce was in front by seven, with 60 seconds to go (76-69). Yet, the Lithuanians turned things around and closed the game on a 0-10 run to “steal” the victory.

Marius Grigonis led the winners with 19 points, while Zach Leday added 16. On the other hand, Nando De Colo had a team-high 29 points for the losing squad.

Zalgiris Kaunas improved to 3-3, whereas Fenerbahce suffered its fifth defeat in the first six games in the EuroLeague (1-5).
