Zalgiris dominates Olimpia 94-62


Zalgiris Kaunas inflicted a severe punishment to Olimpia prevailing easily 94-62. The game lasted 8 or 9 minutes then Zalgiris started its 31-4 run that basically was a knock-out punch. Olimpia tried a couple of time to attempt a comeback but by that time Zalgiris was playing with poise and confidence cruising to a win inspired by a great shooting night. “We have been too passive in the second quarter and losing like that can happen in this EuroLeague but we were too passive in letting the game slip away. If you are tired you still have to respond. From now on that’s the key. We need to react and play these games to improve. We need to establish this kind of mentality”, Coach Pianigiani said at the end.
