And that brings us to our MVP.
He had an amazing first half with 20 points, however he set a new career high with 24 points in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and made two crucial free throws in the last seconds, helping Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz seal the big win over FC Barcelona Lassa. He will share the official MVP weekly award with Cory Higgins who also registered a new career high, however Higgins did it by shooting 16 free throws, while Shengelia had only six attempts from the charity line.

Coach of the week: Sarunas Jasikevicius
The magic bus of Zalgiris Kaunas keeps turning heads all around Europe and Sarunas Jasikevicius should be proud of his team. And this time he even smiled when Milakins made the three. Jasikevicius is proving every week that he can be a legend in coaching, like he was a legend during his playing days.
Last word: Kill Bill
Two things are certain: The sun will rise every day and Vasilis Spanoulis will always go for the kill.
