Pachulia had a double-double by scoring 17 points and getting 14 rebounds in 38 minutes on the court. The Atlanta Hawks have a solid 20-10 record this season. This year Pachulia averages: 6.2ppg, 7.1rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 48.9% and FT: 76.9% in the 30 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Georgian senior national team.

He was the main contributor in a Hapoel J-M's victory against the closely-ranked Hapoel Eilat (7-4) 85-79 in the Israeli Winner League last Monday. Pullen was the best player in that game. He scored 20 points and added 6 assists in 29 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Pullen's second season in pro basketball. Hapoel Migdal Jerusalem (6-5) is placed fifth in the Winner League. Pullen is ranked fourth on the list of the best passers in the league with 4.5apg. This year he also averages: 13.6ppg, 1.3rpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 55.6%(30-54), 3FGP: 45.8%(22-48) in the 11 games. Pullen is a naturalized American.

He also added 4 rebounds in 29 minutes; not bad, considering it's only Fisher's second season in pro basketball. Fisher is currently ninth on the league's list of top scorers with 14.4ppg. He also averaged so far 2.6rpg and 2.5apg in the 14 games. Fisher is a naturalized American.

Tskitishvili scored 11 points, grabbed 9 rebounds, passed 3 assists and added 3 blocks. Champville (6-4) is placed fifth in the Division A. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. Tskitishvili has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 19.6ppg, 12.0rpg, 2.0apg and 3.2bpg. Tskitishvili used to play for the Georgian national team two years ago.
