As you can see in our GameCenter, the last eight games of 2018 were all amazing, but at this point, a unique talent from Slovenia is overshadowing everything else. So guess who is our MVP…
It’s obvious that he is the most gifted player under 20 years old ever to appear in the European basketball scene. Once more he flirted with the triple-double, leading Real Madrid to the road win over Fenerbahce Dogus with 20 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds. And he is by far the leading candidate to win the MVP award of this year.
- Sergio Rodriguez: His best game yet with CSKA Moscow was registered on Spanish soil against Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz with him having 25 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists.
- Nemanja Nedovic: When he plays good, Unicaja Malaga is more than hard to beat. It was proven in the road win over Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv with 20 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists.
- Erick Green: He is a scoring machine and he had 21 points, on 6/12 field goals and 5/5 free throws as Valencia, which needed a win badly, beat Panathinaikos Superfoods.
- Luka Doncic: A legend is born…
- Derrick Brown: The big man of Anadolu Efes had an amazing game with 21 points and 3/4 threes as his team prevailed over Brose Bamberg and remains alive.
Coach of the week: Sarunas Jasikevicius
Yes, it’s him again and for a good reason. Zalgiris Kaunas proved to be a good enough team in order to beat Olympiacos – even if the Reds were missing half their front line – and the real news is that Saras’ team is currently tied in the third place of the standings with Panathinaikos over Fenerbahce and Real Madrid. Is that good enough for you?
Last word: Half of the road
The year ended with eight more thrilling games and with 15 more left until the end of the regular season, nobody is out yet. On the contrary with Zalgiris Kaunas proving to be the big surprise of the league so far and the duo of FC Barcelona Lassa and Anadolu Efes not playing up to their potential, expect many twists and turns in 2018!
