Tonight, the Euroleague featured some extraordinary Ranking point performances which came close to the record of Tanoka Beard who once had 69rkg points in 2004.
Prokom Trefl finally managed to score its first win. Maybe the signing of Mustafa Shakur boosted them or it was only the poorness of their opponents. Nevertheless, the Belgian Center Tomas van den Spiegel came up with a huge 50 ranking points and he will be most likely the MVP of the week. Van den Spiegel, who joined Sopot this season from CSKA finished the game with 27pts, 14rebs, 3stls and 11 received fouls. If that is not enough, he also scored 11 out of 11 free throws and made 8 out of his 11 shots. WOW.
I was going mad when I watched the game between Roanne and Fenerbahce. Not because James White was again having a mediocre game. But my ex-EFC player Marc Salyers was having a monster performance and my actual EFC player Brion Rush was having its worst game. Salyers had an outrageous night from behind the line, but only in streaks. He started with 3/3, then missed the next 6 and then went for another 3/4. He finished the game with 40pts at the end and a ranking score of 40 too. By the way, my favorite blogger Adam Hess came finally up with something, a new haircut and 5 three pointers.
Unfortunately, it was a dark night for another one of my Fantasy heroes. Nikola Pekovic who got used to score a minimum of 30 ranking points finished the game against Real Madrid with an enormous 1 in the most right column of the Euroleague stat sheet. What happened there? At least, he was better than former NY Knicks pick Slavko Vranes with -5, better the Uros Tripkovic with -7 and very close to the Nuggets draft pick Axel Hervelle who had 2 ranking points.
Could have been a disastrous night for my Fantasy team.
