Lietuvos Rytas, one of the two Lithuanian top teams will travel to the United States in October to play a friendly game against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA preseason.

This has been announced a few days ago by the Lithuanian press and the game is scheduled for the 21st October in the Oracle Arena. The people who know how crazy the Lithuanian fans are about basketball will probably tell you that the whole arena will be filled and will be hoping for a remake of the Maccabi Tel Aviv win over Toronto.

It will surely be a different atmosphere in the Bay Area for this matchup as some Lithuanian fans showed already when they invaded the United Center in Chicago for the game between the Bulls and the Pacers in 2006. We will see if another European team can manage to win against a NBA on their court, even if it is only in the preseason.

I wonder if Sarunas and Mully worked together on this.
