Competition formatEdit

Regular seasonEdit

During the regular season, which lasted from 26 September, until 27 April, all teams except Žalgiris, Lietuvos rytas and Neptūnas played 34 games (four against each other, and two against the three mentioned teams). The three mentioned teams only played twenty games, two against each team.

Playoff roundEdit

The top eight teams in the regular season round were divided up into pairs, and each pair played two games (a third game was played if each team in the pair won a game). The semifinals were also played in that format. The playoff round lasted from 28 April until 20 May.

The final round was played between the two winners of the semifinals. The final series for the first place were played in a best-of-seven format, while the series for the third place were played in a best-of-five format.[1]
