Umana Reyer Venice used a blitz of first-half three-pointers to overcome Rytas Vilnius 72-81 and improve to 3-2 in Group B. The result left the home team in trouble at 1-4 at the midway point of the regular season. 

Rytas battled back well in the third quarter, inspired by Martynas Echodas, but the home team couldn´t get closer than 5 as Reyer pulled away again in the final quarter, tying its club record with 14 triples. 

A towering performance from Echodas led Rytas with a career-high 26 points on 11-of-17 two-point shooting, while Terrell Holloway added 15 points in defeat.
