    Damn you Matt, i thought i will leave this away. Club teams just letting the players who was on NT get some rest. Those preparation games means just nothing except of a team trying to prepare for Thursday game (1st euroleague qualification game).
    JV playing that game with Belgians means nothing more than him trying to fit into the team.
    There is no proper link of this game, because Belgian team like to keep it secret, before Euroleague qualification starting.
    That link you posted above, i suppose was from belgium media.
    there is the one from Lithuania media:
    http://www.lrytas.lt/videonews/?id=13168048751315596335
    Not sure why I am being damned.

    When I said "Not great video included in the link" I meant the quality of the taping itself - not Jonas or his play.

    The link I provided did not have a box score or give minute totals so it is difficult to get an idea of how involved he was offensively and how productive he was.

    he's looking solid on the defensive end and wearing a full black leg sleeve on his left leg

    not sure of the opponents talent level, but Valanciunas showed a complete defensive game, was money from the line and had a nice dunk in garbage time, probably the only one in the entire game

    Ya he had some minor injury during practice but no details have been given on what it was. I'm guessing it was a muscle strain.

    1 foul.... nice.

    11 points on 5 shots shooting 60% and 5/6 FT...... nice.

    8 rebs in 19 minutes.... nice.

    Any reason why not starting and only 19 minutes (even though a 20 point win)?

    Makes sense. Thanks RytasFan! (Welcome to RR!)
    That's Predrag Samardziski? Is he any good?

    Also maybe you can answer another question for me; how is the "Ranking" stat calculated, that is listed in the Column furthest to the right? Or what does it mean?

    Those are incredibly gaudy stats for just 19 minutes.

    Ranking is an efficiency rating and is calculated like: pts+rebs+AS+ST+BL(Fv) -BL(Ag)+FL(Rv)-FL(Cm)-TO+2FG(M)-2FG(A)+3FG(M)-3FG(A)+FT(M)-FT(A)

    And another center is Samardziski, yes. He is good enough, he was playing for Macedonia in Eurobasket. They should be sharing minutes with JV.

    There is a highlights of JV in this game :

    How exactly are those blocks counted, because I saw four there. At least.

    The last placing of the ball was something. Well I think when he rebounds the ball after the block they count it as rebound, when he blows the ball away it's counted as a block, stupid though.

    I like that he scores in a variety of ways. He showed offensive rebound put-backs, presenting himself on drive and dish plays, knocking down a face 18 footer, and also a little shot fake put it on the floor and get fouled to go to the FT line. On defense he has great length and did a good job keeping the ball alive by tapping it away from guys in front of him. He had great hustle tracking down a loose ball and showed some grit when he secured a rebound.

    I know it is easy to get excited about your own team's players, but I am pretty keen on Jonas!

    So it is similar in nature to the PER Score in the NBA?

    Why does he shoot 4 free throws in a row at the end there? Lol
    Love that he made all 4 of them though.

    Him being clutch from the line will keep him around the league, on its own.
    Showing some deep range on that one shot too. Looking good JV!

    It's similar in nature, except it doesn't take minutes played into account as PER does. So it's more like performance per game, not per minute.

    No.9 guy fouled on him - it's two free throws, and he (No.9) was arguing with referees, so he got technical foul - it's two free throws more.

    Thanks for posting irgigi.

    1:31 was a nice rebound - nice to see that aggressive/mean streak.

    1:39 was nice d - no flopping eventhough the opponent tried to go through him.

    It is great to see your C able to hit 80-plus % of his FT's. Easy points that are too often left on the table.

    Default Valanciunas Ball

    If everyone else is as basketball deprived as I am, this will be a good watch. It's Jonas' game yesterday. I believe it's 1 of 3 that they had to win in order to qualify for the Euroleague. he had a good game. they don't mention blocks on the page I was on but I saw at least 3.
