Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season - Round 26 MVP: Alexey Shved, Khimki Moscow Region
Khimki Moscow Region star Alexey Shved delivered another brilliant display to claim the MVP of the Round award for the seventh time in his outstanding career.

Shved went 9-of-14 for field goal shooting, also adding 3 steals and committing just 1 turnover for a PIR of 37, another joint career best. Another superb individual performance came from Vasilije Micic of Anadolu Efes Istanbul, who amassed a PIR of 35 by combining 23 points with 9 assists as his team overcame ALBA Berlin on the road. Nikola Mirotic was the next best performer, leading FC Barcelona to a stunning victory at CSKA Moscow with a PIR of 32. Greg Monroe shone in an away win for FC Bayern Munich at Zenit St Petersburg, grabbing a PIR of 31, and Walter Tavares had a personal rating of 30 as Real Madrid defeated Panathinaikos OPAP Athens.
