For the third time this Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season, the honor for the weekā€™s best performance is shared by two players. The regular season came to an end with a flurry of close games, but it was great efforts in a pair of bigger victories that saw Nemanja Bjelica of Caja Laboral Vitoria and Shawn James of Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv become bwin co-MVPs for Week 10. It is the first such honor for each player. Both compiled performance index ratings of 27 ā€“ the best among all players on winning teams this week ā€“ in leading their teams to important wins. Bjelica only missed 1 shot while scoring 22 points, his Euroleague career high, as Vitoria routed Cedevita Zagreb 97-70 at home to clinch a Top 16 berth. Bjelica also had 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals in just 22 minutes off the bench. James collected a double-double to help Maccabi down Alba Berlin 78-62 to finish first in Group B. He scored 10 points on 4-for-5 shooting and tallied 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocked shots for Maccabi. Two other players matched their index ratings of 27, but came out on the losing sides of their gams. Drew Gordon of Partizan mt:s Belgrade had his best game to date with 14 points, 15 rebounds and 2 blocks, including a put-back dunk to force overtime, although his team came up short 92-90 against Brose Baskets Bamberg. In his first Euroleague start, Elan Chalon-sur-Saone forward Clint Capela posted 12 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks in an 86-62 loss at Unicaja Malaga. The week's fifth-best performance, Deon Thompson of Alba Berlin with a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds, couldn't prevent a road loss to Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv.
He's getting better and better. Can't wait for him to come over.
