Didn't watch the game but the result tells it all, Žalgiris is trying to react and losing by only 7 away to Siena with 93 points scored is not easy. Maybe the team can start to lift off now.

The main difference was an improved offense of Zalgiris. Montepaschi had the lead of +17. The gap was reduced only when the winner was obvious. I had an impression that Siena controlled the game and werent' trying too hard. That's what happened in all the games with Barca, PAO and Siena. The only exception was the first game vs. PAO.

Maybe you mentioned that before, but Vilius I really wonder your opinion on Mantas Kalnietis. I've watched him here in Izmir at U20 Championship, but I couldn't keep an eye on him.

He was one of the fastest rising young players in Lithuania a couple of years ago. In 2006 Kalnietis was brought to the main squad of Zalgiris from their B team. He played some minutes in Euroleague and made some dunks. Later that summer he was invited for Lithuania national team for FIBA World Championship. Though next season he played little and wasn't impressive at all. Last season he played behind two great point guards - Marko Popovic and DeJuan Collins. So he had to spend more tiem on the bench.



If we speak about his strong and weak sides as a player then his main weapon is his quickness. Kalnietis is tall for a point guard (1.95m) and he also has a high jump which gives him an advantage against smaller players. However he doesn't always manage to take the full advantage of that. The main weakness of Kalnietis is his shooting. He's not reliable from the free-throw line, neither from three-point zone. Although he had a couple of good games recently and looked like an average shooter but he isn't that.



This season is an excellent opportunity for him to prove that he can be a good player since the only competition he faces in the point guard position are two 19-year-old point guards. And if doesn't progress now and doesn't improve his weak sides then it might be too late.
