NEW YORK, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Get content from Euroleague at:

Since they first met in 2006, every game between Lietuvos Rytas and Caja Laboral has had two common denominators. All five were played in the crucible of the Top 16 - and all were very close. Tau Ceramica's 7-point difference in their first meeting remains the biggest victory margin between them. Lietuvos Rytas took that season's rematch by 2 points, but Tau still reached the playoffs. Two years later, Tau won a pair of three-point thrillers and advanced to the playoffs again. This season, the beat goes on, as Khalid El-Amin's buzzer-beater gave Lietuvos Rytas its first win in Vitoria by 3 points in Top 16 Week 2. More than just the only player to appear in all five games until now, Simas Jasaitis has worn both uniforms in this rivalry - and his personal 4-1 record in it is better than either team against the other! As you might expect, Jasaitis expects nothing less than another battle to the buzzer in tonight's Game of the Week.
