December 22, 2014 - MVP for December: Devin Smith, Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv

devin smithIn his first three seasons at Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv, Devin Smith was considered to be one of the team’s most important players, but often his contributions couldn’t be simply measured by statistics. That changed in December, when the veteran forward took on an even greater role for the defending Euroleague champions. Smith posted impressive numbers – he was the Euroleague’s top scorer for the month– in leading Maccabi to a 3-0 record in December to clinch second place in Group B of the regular season. For those reasons and more, Smith is Euroleague Basketball's choice as bwin MVP for December. At age 31, Smith is the oldest player on the Maccabi Electra roster. And following the season-ending injury to team captain Guy Pnini, he is the team’s longest-tenured member. Maccabi may be the reigning Euroleague champion, but it faced new challenges this season with a change in head coach and the turnover of half the team’s roster. Read more here.





December 20, 2014 - Regular Season, Round 10 bwin MVP: Ioannis Bourousis, Real Madrid

ioannis bourousisHe has long been among the premier big men in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague. On Thursday, Ioannis Bourousis recorded his best performance since he joined Real Madrid last season and in the process became the bwin MVP for Regular Season Round 10. Bourousis starred for Madrid in its 90-70 victory over Anadolu Efes Istanbul to clinch first place in Group A. He finished with 19 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 1 block for a performance index rating of 31, the highest of any player on a winning team in the last week of the regular season. One of Bourousis's former teammates, Keith Langford of Unics Kazan, matched him with a 31 index rating despite his team losing 78-74 at Nizhny Novgorod. That defeat ended Unics's Euroleague run, even though Langford shined with 24 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. It was his first-ever Euroleague double-double. Read more here.

dor fischerWith one of the finer performances seen in any Turkish Airlines Euroleague game this decade, center D'or Fischer continued his brilliant stretch of play for Unics Kazan and earned the bwin MVP award for Round 8 of the regular season.

Fischer was near perfect in scoring 23 points on 10-of-11 shooting, ripping a club-record 15 rebounds and adding 3 assists, 2 blocks and 1 steal for a performance index rating of 43, the best so far this season. What's more, only two players have posted higher index ratings than Fischer's 43 since 2010. The weekly runner-up was Devin Smith, who played a big role in Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv’s 95-89 victory over ALBA Berlin with a career-high 26 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal in a fine all-around performance that netted him an index rating of 28.

December 1, 2014 - MVP for November: Dario Saric, Anadolu Efes Istanbul

dario saricLast month dawned with reason for doubt at Anadolu Efes Istanbul. The team's first Turkish Airlines Euroleague defeat - at home in late October - was followed quickly by news of its best performer until then suffering a long-term injury. Fortunately for his new club, Euroleague Basketball's choice as bwin MVP for November, forward Dario Saric, was ready to be everything that Efes had hoped he would be when signing him last summer. Playing well beyond his 20 years, Saric became the team's anchor over the next four games, averaging the most rebounds and third-most points on any Euroleague team with three or more victories in November. He also led Efes in minutes played and overall shooting accuracy as the team pulled off victories on the road at Nizhny Novgorod and home against both Real Madrid and Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari.

November 4, 2014 - MVP for October: Vassilis Spanoulis, Olympiacos Piraeus

vassilis spanoulisIn certain sports, the player who spends the most time on the playing field is called an Iron Man. In the first month of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague season, the player with the most minutes on court was more like the Man of Steel.

For his impressive will to win, no matter how great the effort required, Spanoulis is Euroleague Basketball's choice as bwin MVP for October. Of five undefeated Euroleague teams after three rounds, only Olympiacos and CSKA Moscow have won two road games, and the Reds did so while defeating two Spanish teams, as well. Spanoulis had everything to do with Olympiacos holding a 3-0 record and sitting alone atop regular season Group D. Read more here.
