With just six games to go in the 7DAYS EuroCup Regular Season, the race to reach the playoffs is beginning to heat up. On Tuesday night, U-BT Cluj-Napoca (4-8) takes on 7Bet-Lietkabelis Panevezys (5-7) in a battle between ninth and eighth in the playoffs. If the season was to end today, Lietkabelis would make the playoffs and Cluj would miss out.
Back in Round 4, Lietkabelis edged past Cluj 89-84 at Cido Arena, but it went right down the wire. Jamel Morris led the way for Lietkabelis that day, scoring 24 points, while he was helped by 16 points from Zeljko Sakic and 14 from Kristian Kullamae. Cluj had Leonardo Meindl (22) and Andrija Stipanovic (20) combine for 42 points, but it wasn’t enough.
