JV looks big but not big enough imo...
11 PTS, 3/5 FG, 5/8 FT, 10 RB (2O/8D), 1 BLK, 3 FL (6 drawn fouls, cool stat, NBA needs this)
how many minutes did he play?
You come at the King, you best not miss.
His English has improved by leaps and bounds since entering the league, couple years and he has the potential to be fluent
Yeah he's losing the accent.
Compared to this two years ago, it's really evident:

Lithuania plays a tough Montenegro team today at 21h CEST (15h EST).
Montenegro's not as strong as they could have been because Nikola Pekovic isn't playing, but the other half of their twin towers, Nikola Vucevic, is still here. Their offense was expected to run through Vucevic and PG Tyrese Rice (Jonas's former teammate at Lietuvos Rytas), but so far Vucevic has been a huge disappointment, with only 6.3 points and 3 boards on 31% shooting in 14 minutes per game. (Rice has been excellent, averaging almost 18 per game on 59% true shooting, and getting to the line 8 times a game.) Vucevic's poor play cost them 2 of their first 3 games, losing very close, winnable ones against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Latvia.
They'll be playing desperate (a loss here almost certainly means elimination), but don't match up well against Lithuania's strong front line. If they hope to pull out a win, it'll be because of a virtuoso scoring performance from Tyrese Rice.

So what happens if Lith wins today? They move onto a next round of the Tournament?
