After putting up a sterling fight through the opening five games of the series, Neptunas were out of gas by the time they took on reigning champions Zalgiris. The result was almost a formality from the off as the home side cruised past the underdogs. It was a brave but utterly outclassed effort from Neptunas that was reminiscent of many of their clashes in the VTB League this season. To their credit, Neptunas were never expected to force the series to six games but that should not outshine a sterling job by Zalgiris. The Kaunas side has endured a troubled season but still managed to take down Lietuvos Rytas in the semi finals before retaining their crown in this series.
