He made both of his two-point shots, was 3 for 4 on three-pointers and perfect in 5 trips to the free throw line. Siva also collected 4 rebounds and 2 steals. The second-highest PIR in Game 1 came from his teammate Luke Sikma with 22 behind a 20-points, 7-rebounds and 6-assist effort. Valencia Basket's Mike Tobey was third with a PIR of 19 thanks to 14 points, 6 rebounds and 3 blocks. The MoraBanc Andorra duo of Andrew Albicy and Jerome Jordan rounded out the top five with PIRs of 18.
