Sostinès KM vs Vilnius KM MKL - October 2020
By Biel Colominas
Point guard with solid positional size, strong frame and above average athleticism, even though he doesn’t have major physical and athletic upside. Jakucionis stands out for his strong basketball IQ: understands the game, plays with poise and takes almost always the right decision with the ball. He is an excellent passer, he's able to find teammates for scoring opportunities in a multiple ways: from throwing an outlet pass right on target after a defensive rebound, to feeding cuts and corner shooters with elite passes off the dribble while driving. As a scorer, he is mainly effective driving aggressively to the basket, not shying away of contacts and using either hands to finish with lay ups. Despite not having the quickest jumpshot, he is a good shooter with consistent mechanics and is able to hit standstill shots from further than the 3-point line. Jakucionis plays defense with strong motor, and he can guard multiple positions given his strength and athleticism. His feel for the game and anticipation are also present at the time to cut passing lanes. Pretty good rebounder on the defensive end.
