Lietuvos Rytas versus archrival Zalgiris for the Baltic league championship. Tip shortly after 8am Pacific. Live video (and, unfortunately, Lithuanian audio) should be available here (mms://82.140.178.145:80/). (source page (http://www.bbl.net/index.php/ZnVzZWFjdGlvbj1hcnRpY2xlcy52aWV3JmlkPTQ5OTk=) has an alternate link as well)

In the paint it's JP versus former Boise State star Tanoka Beard. Talk about a couple bruisers. Hope the refs let 'em play. Go JP!

J.P.'s team won - sounds like he played pretty well. Didn't see a box-score, but you can read a write up here (http://www.bbl.net/index.php/ZnVzZWFjdGlvbj1hcnRpY2xlcy52aWV3JmlkPTc5MjM=). The English translation is a bit funky at times, but understandable and it has a cool pic with J.P. holding up the trophy with one hand in the background.

JP finished with 8 pts and 5 rebs in 18 min. Did all his scoring in the 1st half (which was fine by me since I had to bail at half). About 30 sec's after he entered the game, he got a stickback, then shortly after hit a turnaround from the left block. Also knocked down a beauty of a fadeaway from the right side, and one more leaner just inside the foul line.

For a 1st-year pro, he's had a very good season, and in the limited action I've seen, he seems to fit perfectly for that Euro high screen/roll game. Would love to see him in the NBA in the near future. I suppose it's possible he'll get the Casey treatment ('after all, he doesn't have a position'......blah blah blah). But if JP does stay overseas, he's on the way to having an excellent career.

Congrats on the Baltic title. Rytas has one more championship to go after (in the Lith. league), probably a finals rematch against Zalgiris.

Looks like he's been working on that upper body.;)

Wow, I'm glad we haven't (yet) gone to the blatant advertising on jerseys. That looks horrible!

Nut08, from the LKL site (http://www.lkl.lt/), it looks like JP's team will be playing on Thursday (4/26) and Saturday (4/28). Too bad all the text is in Lith. If I had to guess, I'd say the Thursday game is a L-Rytas home game in Vilnius (when there is a home team, I think it's Euro-style to list the home team first). Which would make the Saturday game on Neptunas' home court in Klaipeda???

Don't hold me to any of that. However, it would be very cool if you could get to a game, that is if you can find out exactly when/where the games are at. Good luck!

That game appears to be on the other side of the country...I will see what I can do though because it would be pretty cool to catch a game
