mike jamesJust a month ago, CSKA Moscow sat in 10th place in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague with a 3-3 record and what looked like a long road to its usual position at or near the top of the standings.

With James going from strength to strength as CSKA mowed down five consecutive opponents, the Russian giants are suddenly tied for first place on victories and looking very much like the same juggernaut that has reached 16 out of the last 17 Final Fours. Despite missing one round, James outscored everybody in the EuroLeague in November, ending the month with a three-game flurry of point production that culminated in a memorable, game-winning, four-point play. With that, James not only completed his month-long rise from fourth to first place in the top-scorer race, but also gave CSKA bragging rights as the only perfect EuroLeague team in November.

He missed just 3 of 16 shots while adding 2 assists, 2 steals and 8 fouls drawn for a career-high performance index rating of 35 in his 107th career EuroLeague game. This week's second-best performances belonged to Darrun Hilliard of CSKA Moscow and Corey Walden of Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade, who posted identical PIRs of 32.

Zalgiris Kaunas (5-1) sitting in joint first place while Real Madrid (2-4) languishes outside the playoffs positions might seem like a complete role reversal, but that shifting status is a fair reflection of the opening weeks of the season.

November 2, 2020 - MVP for October: Marius Grigonis, Zalgiris Kaunas

marius grigonisHe emerged last month as a go-to leader on a team that has already in this young season accomplished something unprecedented. And now, for his key role in helping Zalgiris Kaunas lock down a share of first place, 26-year-old swingman Marius Grigonis is Euroleague Basketball's choice as the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague MVP for October. His numbers are more than respectable, but perhaps the most important one shows Grigonis averaging at least 4 minutes more than anyone else on a Zalgiris team that is the first in EuroLeague history to win four road games in four countries during the same month. In three of them, Zalgiris trailed after 30 minutes on other teams' courts, but Grigonis was good for a combined 19 points to spur those fourth-quarter comebacks on to victory. At month's end, Zalgiris had a 5-1 record and was tied for the league lead despite having traveled more than 15,000 kilometers round trip. All those hours in transit didn't affect Grigonis during all his time on court helping Zalgiris to its longest road winning streak this century – which is also the stuff that MVPs of the Month are made of.

Mirotic earned weekly MVP honors for the sixth time in his EuroLeague career. Grigonis reached this award for the first time, and is the first Lithuanian player so honored since Edgaras Ulanovas of Zalgiris in Game 4 of the 2018 playoffs.

Grigonis led Zalgiris to a 74-83 victory against LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne with 25 points on 6-for-8 two-point and 7-for-7 free-throw accuracy, adding 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 6 fouls drawn for a PIR of 27. In that game, Moustapha Fall of ASVEL also amassed a PIR of 27 but couldn't help his team win. Fall finished with 7 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, a block and 11 fouls drawn.

October 28, 2020 - Round 6

The action continues with a set of enticing games in Round 6 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, including the season’s early pace-setters attempting to maintain their momentum against two under-achieving giants. If you had been asked to predict which team would be still searching for form with a 2-3 record and which would be flying high at 3-1 ahead of CSKA Moscow’s home meeting with Valencia on Thursday, it’s unlikely you would have picked the Russian team to be the strugglers.

October 24, 2020 - MVP of the Week: Nemanja Nedovic, Panathinaikos OPAP Athens

nemanja nedovicWith a huge game just when his new team needed it most, Nemanja Nedovic of Panathinaikos OPAP Athens has earned the MVP of the Week award, the first of his seven-season Turkish Airlines EuroLeague career. Nedovic scored 28 points, second-best in his seven EuroLeague seasons, to lead Panathinaikos past Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul 82-68 on Thursday. His performance off the bench came with career highs of 7 three-pointers made, tying the second-most ever by a Panathinaikos player, and 2 blocks, as well. The week's top performance came from Daniel Hackett of CSKA Moscow in an 86-84 overtime loss to Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade. Hackett's 29 points and 39 PIR, the EuroLeague's highest so far this season, were career highs in his 197th EuroLeague game. Matching Nedovic with a 28 PIR, but in a losing cause, was Alexey Shved of Khimki Moscow Region, whose monster 32-point, 11-assist double-double went for naught as visiting Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv won their game in overtime, 87-89.
