Carl Lindbom claims Finnish Korisliiga weekly honour - Oct 7, 2016

Carl Lindbom
Carl Lindbom (206-SF-91) had an amazing evening in the last round for Helsinki Seagulls and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 1.
The 25-year old had a double-double of 24 points and twelve rebounds, while his team beat BC Nokia (#7, 0-1) 83-76. It allowed Helsinki Seagulls to jump to the first place in the Finnish Korisliiga. But it's just the very beginning of the season and Helsinki Seagulls won just one (their first) game. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. In the team's last game Lindbom had a remarkable 66.7% from 2-point range. He has many years of experience at Helsinki Seagulls, through which he has constantly improved.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 27-year old American forward Al'Lonzo Coleman (201-F-89) of Salon Vilpas. Coleman impressed basketball fans with 20 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists. Of course he led Salon Vilpas to another comfortable win outscoring KTP Basket (0-1) 86-58. His team has extremely good start of the season. They won their first game. However the season is at the beginning, so everything can happen. They still may lose their high position in the standings. Coleman is a newcomer at Salon Vilpas and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.0ppg (#4). He also registered 9.0 boards per game.

The third best performed player last round was American Dominique Lee (196-F-91, agency: Blacktop Management) of second-ranked Korihait. Lee scored 23 points and grabbed six rebounds. He was a key player of Korihait, leading his team to an 85-63 easy win against Lapua (#9, 0-1). Korihait has a very good start of the season. But there was just one game played, so it's too early to judge them at this stage. Lee also has a very good start of the season with very strong stats. The season just started for Lee as he played only first game. But it already looks like he can be team's leader.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Raymond Cowels III (193-F/G-90) of Helsinki Seagulls - 18 points and 13 rebounds
5. Ville Kaunisto (204-PF-82) of Kouvot - 18 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Ricky Minard (196-F/G-82) of Pyrinto - 15 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Raheem Appleby (190-G-93) of Kouvot - 22 points
8. Juwan Staten (185-PG-92) of Salon Vilpas - 10 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Desmond Williams (199-G-91) of Salon Vilpas - 14 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Kwame Alexander (201-C-90) of BC Nokia - 10 points and 9 rebounds

The Player of the week is chosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
