March 16, 2019 - Quarterfinals MVP: Peyton Siva, ALBA Berlin

peyton sivaComing back from two injuries in the middle of the same season is a feat that few players can claim. Not only did Peyton Siva come back, but he was instrumental in leading ALBA Berlin to the 7DAYS EuroCup Semifinals for just the second time in club history, and in so doing earned Euroleague Basketball's nod as the MVP of the quarterfinals. Siva missed four regular season games and the entire Top 16 with rib and knee injuries, respectively, but that did not stop him from dominating ALBA's dramatic 2-1 series victory over 2017 EuroCup champion Unicaja Malaga. ALBA made history by becoming the first EuroCup team ever to win a best-of-three series after losing Game 1 on its home floor, and Siva had a lot to say about that. He led all players in quarterfinals with 8.0 assists per game, and finished among the top six in both average performance index rating (17.0) and points (13.3). Read more here.
