BC Kalev/Cramo hosted TTÜ in Baltic League play-offs and understandably there wasn’t much excitement due to the big win from the previos game (+38 for Kalev). Despite a very small chance on advance, TTÜ didn’t come to just play, they game to win and gave the hosts a tough time. After being down 2:10 in the first three minutes TTÜ regained their confidence and took a 40:39 lead in the second quarter, Kalev took the lead back before the half (49:47). After the game Varrak was frustrated in the defense, letting TTÜ score 47 points in first half was too much.
In the second half, Kalev started showing their game and went on a 14:2 run in seven minutes and took a comfortable 92:72 win in the end. Vitaly Liutych continued his strong game finishing with 23 points and 7 rebounds, Keedus added 12, Veideman and Tollefsen had 11.
