May 3, 2017 - Playoffs Game 5 MVP: Vassilis Spanoulis, Olympiacos Piraeus

vassilis spanoulisIt is only fitting that in a game that saw Olympiacos Piraeus secure its place at the Final Four, Vassilis Spanoulis would be MVP. Spanoulis had the best performance index rating, 22, among the 24 men that suited up in Game 5 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs to earn MVP honors. The Reds’ guard continued to add to his legendary status as he took charge with 22 points and 6 assists in an 87-78 victory over Anadolu Efes Istanbul on Tuesday at Peace & Friendship Stadium. He also made history by making 8 of 11 free throws and becoming the first player to reach 900 free throws in the EuroLeague. Spanoulis was 2 for 7 from downtown to set a EuroLeague record for three-pointers in a playoff series with 17. The next-highest index rating in Game 5 came from Efes forward Tyler Honeycutt, who produced 10 points and 10 rebounds in compiling an index rating of 15. And Olympiacos big man Khem Birch was third with 9 points, 11 rebounds and an index rating of 14. Read more here.

The identity of the last Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four contestant will be decided on Tuesday night as Olympiacos Piraeus and Anadolu Efes Istanbul return to the Peace and Friendship Stadium with their playoffs series tied at two games apiece. This will mark the first time ever that the same teams play a second Game 5 in the EuroLeague playoffs, the first having taken place between them in 2013, also in Piraeus. Olympiacos won that game and went on to repeat as EuroLeague champion. Read more here.

Here is the schedule for Game 5:

Olympiacos Piraeus - Anadolu Efes Istanbul 87-78



April 29, 2017 - Playoffs Game 4 MVP: Luka Doncic, Real Madrid

luka doncicReal Madrid secured a Final Four berth with its second road win in less than 48 hours against Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul on Friday night, and once again the team's youngest player helped make it happen. Teenage sensation Luka Doncic stood tall for Madrid to earn the title of MVP for Game 4 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs. It marked the 18-year old's second consecutive MVP of the round award, after he shared the honor 48 hours earlier in Game 3. It's Doncic's fourth such honor this season, second to only reigning EuroLeague MVP Nando De Colo of CSKA Moscow, who won six. Doncic was everywhere for Madrid on Friday, scoring 11 points, dishing 7 assists and collecting 5 rebounds. He made his only two-point shot attempt, hit 1 of 4 from downtown and went 6 for 8 from the free throw line in addition to collecting 1 steal and 6 fouls drawn for a performance index rating of 21, the highest among all players in the two Game 4 contests. Read more here.



April 28, 2017 - Game 4

Another day of destiny is at hand on Friday as all eyes turn to Istanbul for Game 4 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs, which could see the remaining two places secured for next month's Final Four in the same city. First, at Volkswagen Arena, Real Madrid will aim for a Final Four-clinching victory after having won on the road on Wednesday for a 2-1 series lead over host Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul. In a closely contested series, one notable difference between the teams has been their ability to share the ball, with Madrid averaging 19.7 assists per game against Darussafaka's 12.7.

Here is the schedule for Game 4:

Playoff A

Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul vs. Real Madrid 78-89

Playoff C

April 27, 2017 - Playoffs Game 3 tri-MVPs: Dunston, Ayon and Doncic

Game 3 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs was just too big for only one player to take the MVP honor, so for the first time ever in this phase, three of them are sharing it! Bryant Dunston of Anadolu Efes Istanbul and Real Madrid teammates Gustavo Ayon and Luka Doncic all played central roles in Game 3 victories that gave their teams 2-1 leads in the best-of-five playoffs. The three tied for the highest performance index rating, 23, on the four winning teams in Game 3. Dunston reached that number first with 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting and 9 rebounds as Efes outlasted Olympiacos Piraeus 64-60 at home on Wednesday. Later that night, as Madrid bested Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul 81-88 on the road, Ayon totaled 18 points, 9 boards, 3 assists and 2 steals while Doncic recorded 13 points and 8 rebounds. It marks the third time that Doncic has at least shared the MVP award, but is the first such honor this season for both Ayon and Dunston. Read more here.



April 25, 2017 - Game 3

April 22, 2017 - Playoffs Game 2 MVP: Bogdan Bogdanovic, Fenerbahce Istanbul

bogdan bogdanovicBogdan Bogdanovic is proving once again that he is a big-time player for big-time games. The Fenerbahce Istanbul guard matched his MVP performance from Game 1 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs to lead his team to a second victory and become MVP of Game 2, as well! In doing so, Bogdanovic became the first player in competition history to win MVP honors in the first two games of a playoff series. His performance index rating of 35, the highest rating of any player in Game 2 of the playoffs, exactly matched his production from Game 1. This time, Fenerbahce defeated Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens 75-80 to become the first team ever to win the first two games of a playoff series away from home. Bogdanovic posted 25 points – which set a team record for points in the playoffs – on 5-for-7 two-point and 5-for-8 three-point shooting. Read more here.



April 20, 2017 - Game 2

As it has done all season, the Russian team built its success in Game 1 on team offense, with nine different players dishing at least one assist in a combined total of 21, and an 87.1% free throw shooting percentage also contributing significantly to a total of 98 points.

Here is the schedule for Game 2:

Playoff A

Real Madrid vs. Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul 80-84

April 20, 2017 - Playoffs, Game 1 MVP: Bogdan Bogdanovic, Fenerbahce Istanbul

bogdan bogdanovicBogdan Bogdanovic saved his best game of the season for the biggest stage so far in leading Fenerbahce Istanbul to a come-from-behind 58-71 road win over Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens on Tuesday night. In doing so, he claimed MVP honors for Game 1 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs. Bogdanovic starred with a fantastic all-around game that saw him tally 23 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocks for a performance index rating of 35, which – like his block total – represented a career-high. Bogdanovic made 5 of 6 three-pointers in amassing the highest index rating of any player in the playoff openers. Real Madrid star Sergio Llull had the second-highest index rating of Game 1 with a 23 in his team’s 83-75 series-opening victory over Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul. Llull scored 23 points on 3-of-6 shooting from downtown plus 8-of-9 from the free throw line. He also delivered 6 assists. Read more here.



April 18, 2017 - Game 1

Here is the schedule for Game 1:

Playoff A

Real Madrid vs. Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul 83-75
