March 16, 2018 - 7DAYS EuroCup Quarterfinals MVP: Dmitry Kulagin, Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar

dmitry kulaginFor stepping up when his team needed him most to stay perfect this season, Dmitry Kulagin of Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar is Euroleague Basketball's choice for MVP of the 7DAYS EuroCup Quarterfinals. Lokomotiv faced the loss of its top scorer, forward Ryan Broekhoff, right before its quarterfinal series began with dangerous Herbalife Gran Canaria. But there was no reason to worry, because Kulagin, a former Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion, picked up the scoring slack in record-setting fashion to lead Lokomotiv to a 2-0 sweep. Kulagin posted 26 points per game in the series, giving him the highest scoring average for the quarterfinals in the history of the competition! What's more, his 32-point explosion in Game 2 was the second-highest scoring total for Lokomotiv player in the club's 87 games over five EuroCup seasons to date. Kulagin's effort helped his team reach the semifinals for the third time and raise its record to 18-0, one victory short of the EuroCup's best winning streak ever, which also belongs to Lokomotiv.
