Extractions: ATHENS, Greece - Redemption came from the perfect spot - the 3-point line - for Sarunas Jasikevicius. The Lithuanian guard, whose off-target 3-pointer kept his team from pulling off the biggest upset of the Sydney Olympics, didn't miss when it counted Saturday night against the Americans in a thrilling 94-90 victory. He hit three shots in a row from behind the arc as the fourth quarter wound down, including a rare four-point play that put his team ahead to stay. He finished with 28 points. BOXSCORE U.S.-Lithuania box score Lithuanian fans celebrate wildly "You know, Sydney was four years ago. The shot in Sydney, I keep saying, never had a chance to go in," Jasikevicius said. "It was really an impossible shot." When he got another chance against the Americans, he took advantage, handing them their second loss of the Athens Games. The defeat matches the U.S. team's total from the country's first 68 years of Olympic competition and was only the second since the 1992 Dream Team brought the first pro players to the games.

Extractions: ATHENS (Aug. 24, 2004) Could it be that the best point guard in the world doesn't even play in the NBA? That's the belief among many here in Athens who have been watching Lithuania's Sarunas Jasikevicius over the last week and a half. From his creative flair as a playmaker to his unlimited shooting range, the 6-3 point guard has emerged as one of the top players in the Olympic tournament. So why hasn't Jasikevicius been given a shot at playing professionally in the United States? The 28-year-old, who played stateside in high school (Solanco H.S., Quarryville, Pa.) and college (University of Maryland, 1995-98) doesn't have the answer. "I can't just walk into a team's locker room and say, 'Hey, I came to play for your team,' Jasikevicius said after being asked why he hasn't played in the NBA. "I had no propositions at all from the NBA so far, and since those guys know what they're doing, I guess I'm not supposed to be able to play in the NBA."

Extractions: Cavaliers-Free Agency By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cavaliers' low-speed pursuit of a point guard has taken a sudden turn. Advertisement With free agent Sarunas Jasikevicius agreeing to a three-year contract with the Indiana Pacers, Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry has one less option to choose from in his search to fill the Cavaliers' most problematic position the past few years. But restricted free agent Marko Jaric could resolve Cleveland's pressing backcourt needs. Jaric, who has played the past three seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, will visit with Cavaliers officials on Wednesday, his agent Bill Duffy said Monday. Jaric had been expected in town last week, but his stopover was delayed - perhaps because of the club's interest in Jasikevicius, a European superstar who was also the best man at the wedding of Cavs center Zydrunas Ilgauskas. ``Marko would be a nice fit in Cleveland,'' Duffy said. ``Danny Ferry has been very assertive in his interest. We'll see what happens.'' Duffy said there are several other teams courting the 6-foot-7 Jaric, who will reportedly visit Denver on Tuesday. Utah, too, is believed to be after Jaric after losing out on Jasikevicius.
