Turkish Airlines EuroLeague RS - Round 11 MVP: Vasilije Micic, Anadolu Efes Istanbul
His late-game dominance in Anadolu Efes Istanbul's come-from-behind 82-71 home win over Olympiacos Piraeus has earned Vasilije Micic the MVP honor for Round 11. Micic flirted with a triple-double on the way to a performance index rating of 31, the highest among winning players on Thursday or Friday. He finished with 18 points, 11 of them as Efes rallied in the fourth quarter, to go with 9 assists and a career-high 9 rebounds. This marks the 10th MVP of the Round honor in Micic's career, tying him for third all-time.

Round 11's highest PIR was 43 by Lorenzo Brown of Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv, but because his team lost, we was not eligible to be the MVP. Brown tied for the highest single-game PIR this season. He made 11 of 14 two-point shots and 11 of 12 free throws for a career-high 36 points, the second-highest total ever by a Maccabi player, but his team lost 98-89 at FC Bayern Munich. Two more players with higher PIRs than Micic whose teams lost came next. Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade center Mathias Lessort had 22 points on 8-for-9 two-point shooting plus 10 rebounds for a PIR of 37 in a 96-100 overtime home loss to Valencia Basket. Brandon Davies of EA7 Emporio Armani Milan posted a PIR of 33 based on 23 points and 12 rebounds in a 78-62 defeat at Cazoo Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz. Another winner, Derrick Williams of Panathinaikos Athens finished fifth in Round 11 with a PIR of 30. Williams scored 25 points and pulled 10 rebounds as the Greens defeated host Zalgiris Kaunas 67-81.

Individual highs: Lorenzo Brown, Maccabi 36 points

Brown's 36 points for Maccabi were the most by any player in a game this season. Will Clyburn of Efes is the overall scoring leader at 20.7 points per game. Georgios Papagiannis of Panathinaikos led all Round 11 rebounders with 13. The season leader is Sasha Vezenkov of Olympiacos Piraeus with 8.2 per game. Micic was the top assist-maker this week with 9. Kostas Sloukas of Olympiacos leads the assists rankings with 6.8 on average. Nine different players tied with 3 steals each as the most in Round 11. The steals leader is Thomas Walkup of Olympiacos at 2.5 per game. Papagiannis, with 4, topped all shot-blockers this week. Walter Tavares of Real Madrid is the overall leader with an average of 2.2 blocks. All three double-doubles of Round 11 were in points and rebounds: Lessort of Partizan (22 and 10), Davies of Milan (23 and 11) and Williams of Panathinaikos (25 and 10).
