Status, dynamics, form and the significance of results were the criteria for ranking the 18 teams.

#18 ZALGIRIS KAUNAS

Previous ranking: 17 (-1)
Record: 4-12
At home: 2-7
Away: 2-5
Offense-Defense: 75.9-77.2

There was a time when Zalgiris was in eighth place. It was after the win over Fenerbahce (76-79 in Round 6). The Lithuanian champs had to wait 56 days until they could celebrate the next one. Nine consecutive defeats later and in spite of the win over Bayern (73-98), they are in 17th place. This season had begun full of ambition for Coach Sarunas Jasikevicius and his players. Alex Perez is not one of them any longer, K.C. Rivers was added and is trying to provide solutions from the backcourt, and Marius Grigonis is temporarily out because of an injury, just when the team needs all the help it could get, especially with games like the ones against Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv and Real Madrid coming up.
