The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 4 rounds. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Oradea (21-5) on the court of third ranked Targu Mures on Saturday night. Visitors were rolled over by Targu Mures 81-48. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Oradea. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. Targu Mures dominated on the defensive end, holding Oradea to just 7 points in second quarter. Lithuanian guard Gediminas Navickas (180-84) scored 21 points to lead the charge for the winners and Montenegrin guard Branko Cuic (197-78) chipped in 15 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists during the contest. Serbian guard Nemanja Maric (196-83) responded with 12 points and 4 assists. Oradea's coach Christian Achim gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Targu Mures have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Ploiesti and Craiova. Oradea at the other side still keeps top position with five games lost. Targu Mures is looking forward to face Pitesti (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Oradea will play against CSM Bucuresti (#8) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Craiova. Eleventh ranked Rovinari (13-13) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging second-ranked Craiova (19-7) 84-83 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the home team. American-Liberian guard Jaytornah Wisseh (185-88, college: LIU Brooklyn) notched 29 points and 8 rebounds to lead the effort and Louis Darby supported him with 26 points and 10 rebounds (was perfect 11-for-11 from the free throw line !!!). Even 21 points and 7 assists by Serbian guard Rade Dzambic (188-80, college: NYIT, agency: TSS Management) did not help to save the game for Craiova. Rovinari moved-up to ninth place. Craiova at the other side keeps the second position with seven games lost. They share it with Targu Mures and Ploiesti. Rovinari will play against higher ranked U-Mobitelco (#6) in Cluj in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Craiova will play on the road against Ploiesti (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Bucuresti was also quite interesting. 6th ranked U-Mobitelco (17-9) played at the court of eighth ranked CSM Bucuresti (16-10). CSM Bucuresti managed to secure a 5-point victory 93-88 on Sunday. The best player for the winners was Goran Martinic who scored 25 points. Mihail-Octavian Paul produced 23 points for the guests. CSM Bucuresti maintains eighth position with 16-10 record. Loser U-Mobitelco keeps the sixth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Timisoara. CSM Bucuresti will meet league's leader Oradea on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. U-Mobitelco will play against Rovinari (#9) and hope to secure a win.
An interesting game took place in Constanca where higher ranked Pitesti (12-14) was upset on the court of fourteenth ranked Farul Const. (5-21) 82-63. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Pitesti. Jeremi Booth orchestrated the victory by scoring 29 points and 6 rebounds (on 14-of-15 shooting from the field). Pitesti's coach Tudor Costescu rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Newly promoted Farul Const. maintains fourteenth position with 5-21 record. Pitesti at the other side keeps the tenth place with 14 games lost. Farul Const.'s next round opponent will be bottom-ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (#16) on the road.
An interesting game took place in Timisoara where higher ranked CSU Sibiu (12-14) was upset on the court of thirteenth ranked Timba Timosoara (7-19) 84-80 on Saturday. Rickey Huckaby scored 23 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists to lead the charge for the winners. Newly promoted Timba Timosoara maintains thirteenth position with 7-19 record. CSU Sibiu lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the tenth place with 14 games lost. Timba Timosoara will face Miercurea Ciuc (#15) on the road in the next round.

Ploiesti - Timisoara 89-79

Rather expected game when 6th ranked Timisoara (17-9) was defeated on the road by fourth ranked Ploiesti (19-7) 89-79 on Saturday.

Gaz Metan - Miercurea Ciuc 99-59

Very predictable result in Medias where fifth ranked Gaz Metan (18-8) smashed 15th ranked Miercurea Ciuc (3-23) 99-59 on Saturday. The game without a history.

Not a big story in a game when 16th ranked CS Dinamo Bucuresti (1-25) was rolled over on the road by twelfth ranked Giurgiu (9-17) 101-62 on Saturday. The game without a history.
