We bring you last week's top performances from French who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Tony Parker
Tony Parker
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Tony Parker (188-82, currently plays in NBA). He led San Antonio Spurs to a victory over the Boston Celtics (12-12) 103-88 in the NBA in Saturday night's game. Parker was MVP of the game. He recorded 22 points, 8 assists and 4 steals in 36 minutes on the court. The San Antonio Spurs have a solid 19-8 record this season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Parker's 12th year with the team. Parker has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 18.8ppg, 3.3rpg, 7.3apg, 2FGP: 50.9%, 3FGP: 39.3% and FT: 82.6% in the 25 games he played so far. Parker is currently a member of the French senior national team.

Joakim Noah
Joakim Noah
   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Joakim Noah (211-85, college: Florida, currently plays in NBA). He was the main contributor in a Chicago Bulls' victory against the Philadelphia 76ers (12-13) 96-89 in the NBA last Wednesday. Noah was the best player in that game. He recorded 21 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and made 3 blocks (made all of his seven free throws). The Chicago Bulls have 14-10 record this season. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Noah is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his sixth year in Bulls' roster. Noah is currently seventh on the list of best rebounders. This season he has very high stats. Noah averages: 13.6ppg, 10.6rpg, 4.5apg, 2.3bpg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 48.8% and FT: 80.8%. He is a naturalized American. Noah played for the French national team in 2011. Strangely he has never played in France.

Fabien Causeur
Fabien Causeur
   #3. The French player who performed third best last week abroad was an international shooting guard Fabien Causeur (193-87, currently plays in Euroleague). Causeur contributed to an easy victory against the sixth-ranked Cedevita crushing them 97-70 in the Euroleague on Friday night. He was the top player that evening. Causeur recorded 23 points and added 4 passes in 21 minutes. Caja Laboral Vitoriais placed fourth in group F. It's Causeur's first season with the team. This year his overall stats are: 6.1ppg, 1.3rpg, 1.4apg, 3FGP: 47.1%(8-17) in the 10 games. Causeur is also a member of the French senior national team.

He recorded a double-double by scoring 11 points and making 10 passes. Batum also added 5 rebounds, 5 blocks and 5 steals. The Portland Trail Blazers have 11-12 record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This season Batum has very high stats. He averages: 15.8ppg, 5.6rpg, 3.7apg, 1.2bpg and 1.7spg. Batum is also French national team player.

Nando De Colo
Nando De Colo
   #5. International shooting guard Nando De Colo (196-87, currently plays in NBA) is a teammate of previously mentioned Tony Parker. But that was another game of his team in NBA which we would like to mention. De Colo, who plays in the NBA could not help the San Antonio Spurs (19-8) in their last game. Despite his good performance the San Antonio Spurs lost 93-107 on the road to the Oklahoma City Thunder. De Colo was the second best scorer with 14 points. He also added 6 passes in 23 minutes. This year De Colo's total stats are: 4.0ppg, 1.7rpg and 1.9apg in the 22 games. He plays currently for the French national team.

   #7. U20 international guard Leo Westermann (198-92, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Euroleague) was not able to help Partizan in their game against Brose Baskets Bamberg (0-0) in the Euroleague, despite his very good performance in Thursday night's game.

But the fifth-placed Partizan was edged in an overtime 92-90 in Bamberg by the lower-ranked (#5) Brose Baskets in the group _ of Euroleague.

Kevin Seraphin
   #9.

Seraphin scored 16 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 37 minutes. But the Washington Wizards lost 96-102 in Los Angeles to the Lakers. It was Wizards' fourth consecutive loss in a row. Seraphin has very impressive stats this year: 11.2ppg and 5.9rpg in the 21 games. He is also in the roster of the French national team.

Boris Diaw
Boris Diaw
   #10. Power forward Boris Diaw (203-82, currently plays in NBA) is a teammate of previously mentioned Tony Parker. However that was another game of his team in NBA which brought him to that list. Diaw couldn't help the San Antonio Spurs (19-8) in their game against the Denver Nuggets (14-12). He recorded only 4 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and made 2 blocks. The San Antonio Spurs were defeated 112-106 in Denver by the Nuggets. Diaw has averaged so far 5.6ppg, 3.6rpg and 2.5apg.

   #12. Former U20 international guard Thomas Heurtel (188-89, currently plays in Spain) is a teammate of previously mentioned Fabien Causeur.
