  EuroLeague 2020-21 Playoffs


May 7, 2021 - MVP for April: Will Clyburn, CSKA Moscow

will clyburnThe last Final Four MVP is ready for his next appearance at the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague's crowning event later this month in Cologne, Germany. CSKA Moscow forward Will Clyburn proved that much while leading his team to a 6-0 record in April that included the highest average performance index rating for any player in the playoffs, which was more than enough to earn him Euroleague Basketball’s nod as MVP for April. CSKA swept its playoff with Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul while all other series reached five games, and Clyburn was the catalyst of that success. The fifth-year Euroleague veteran was at his best throughout the playoffs with a PIR average of 22.7 over three games to lead CSKA to its 17th Final Four in the last 18 opportunities. Before that, Clyburn helped CSKA close out the regular season wins against Khimki Moscow Region, LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne and Panathinaikos OPAP Athens by an average margin of 16.7 points, rounding out CSKA's perfect month of April.

May 6, 2021 - MVP of the Week: Shavon Shields, Milan

shavon shieldsThe best single-game playoffs performance in more than 15 years has earned AX Armani Exchange Milan forward Shavon Shields the first MVP honor of his three-season Turkish Airlines EuroLeague career. With career highs of 34 points and a 41 performance index rating, Shields carried Milan to a nail-biting 92-89 home win over FC Bayern Munich in their best-of-five series finale on Tuesday to clinch the club's first Final Four appearance since 1992. His PIR is the best following the very first night of the modern playoffs format, back in 2005, and his point total is tied for the highest in a playoffs victory over that span. Shields was followed by another stellar clutch performer as Chris Singleton led Anadolu Efes Istanbul across the finish line to the Final Four in an 88-83 home win over Real Madrid that went down to the final minute.

May 1, 2021 - MVP of the Week: Will Clyburn, CSKA Moscow

will clyburnAfter missing almost the whole 2019-20 season with a torn ACL, CSKA Moscow's Will Clyburn was back with a vengeance this season and he sealed that with a career performance that allowed his team to go to its ninth straight Final Four and earn him the MVP of the Week honor for Games 3 and 4 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs. Clyburn shined in Game 3 with a PIR 38 at Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul and led CSKA to a series sweep that punched its ticket to be in Cologne in late May to play for the title. It was a night to remember for Clyburn, who set new personal bests in PIR, points (34), three-pointers made (5) and free throws made (11). He also added 7 rebounds and 1 steal to a great all-around performance in 31 minutes coming off the bench. It was the highest PIR for the winner of a playoff game in 15 years. Read more here.

The Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs could be concluded this week with three teams needing just one more win to secure Final Four qualification, while the other series is perfectly poised at 1-1. The first team with an opportunity to book a place at the Final Four is Anadolu Efes Istanbul, which travels to Real Madrid knowing that victory on either Tuesday or Thursday will be enough to advance. Efes has made one of the most dominant starts to a playoffs series ever seen, winning all eight quarters en route to taking Game 1 by 27 points and Game 2 by 23 points. Coach Ataman's team has been able to count upon major contributions from its star backcourt duo of Shane Larkin and Vasilije Micic, who combined for an average of 32.5 points and 9 assists over the first two games. But they were by no means the only contributors, with Sertac Sanli also dominating the frontcourt with 11.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. Read more here.

April 22, 2021 - Game 2

Zenit St Petersburg became the first eighth-place team to upset the regular-season champ in Game 1 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs on Wednesday as it stole the home-court advantage in its best-of-five series. Zenit is joined by CSKA Moscow, Anadolu Efes Istanbul and AX Armani Exchange Milan as the Game 1 winners. While Efes blasted Real Madrid on Tuesday, Milan had one of the greatest comebacks in playoff history to beat FC Bayern Munich on the buzzer. CSKA entered the fourth quarter down 2 on Wednesday before dominating Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul down the stretch. Then Zenit held off FC Barcelona to make history. Why is Game 1 so important?
