KLAIPEDA (Basketball Champions League) - It doesn't matter if you win ugly, just win. That is one way to describe Neptunas Klaipeda's performance as they won for the fifth time in as many Basketball Champions League Group C games on Wednesday over a visiting PAOK, 68-63.
PAOK shot a miserly 32.26 percent (20 of 62) from the floor in the game.
When it came time for the last 10 minutes to be played, Neptunas and especially their Gameday 4 hero, Jerai Grant, came good.
The home side repeatedly got the ball inside to Grant and the 27-year-old big man either scored or got to the free-throw line where he made all six of his attempts on the night.
When it was over, Neptunas had outscored PAOK 21-9 in the last frame for a five-point triumph.
Grant, who gave his team victory at EWE Baskets Oldenburg in Germany last week with a go-ahead shot in the lane in the waning seconds, finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds against PAOK.
