Latvian LBL round 22 best performance: Lauris Blaus (by Court Side) - Feb 21, 2017


POSTED BY:

Lauris Blaus
Former international Center Lauris Blaus (208-C-90) put on an amazing game in the last round for second-ranked Valmiera, receiving a Court Side Player of the Week award for round 22.
The 26-year old player was the main contributor (25 points, eight rebounds and four assists) to his team's victory, helping them to crush BK Ogre (#8, 8-13) with 18-point margin 97-79. Valmiera maintains the 2nd position in Latvian LBL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Valmiera will need more victories to improve their 14-8 record. It was one of impressive evenings for Blaus as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Lauris Blaus averages this season 11.6ppg and 5.9rpg.

The second best player in last round's games was 25-year old American Malcolm Griffin (193-G-91, agency: Promotex) of Liepaja/Triobet. Griffin had a very good evening with 29 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists. Of course he led Liepaja/Triobet to another comfortable win 95-81 over slightly lower-ranked Jurmala (#7, 10-14) being unquestionably team leader. This victory allowed Liepaja/Triobet to move up to 6th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 10-12 record. Griffin is a newcomer at Liepaja/Triobet, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.1ppg (#2). His other stats are also decent: 5.4rpg and 7.5apg.

Third on the list of top players last round was another Liepaja/Triobet's star - forward Artjoms Butjankovs (205-F/C-91). Butjankovs got into 30-points club by scoring exactly 30 points in the last round. He went also for nine rebounds . He was another key player of Liepaja/Triobet, helping his team with a 95-81 easy win against slightly lower-ranked Jurmala (#7, 10-14). The chances of Liepaja/Triobet ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 12 games, recording just ten victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Butjankovs could help Liepaja/Triobet to bring them higher in the standings. Butjankovs has a great season in Latvia. After 17 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 14.6ppg (6th best) and rebounds with 7.2rpg (5th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Ingus Jakovics (186-PG-93) of Ventspils - 19 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists
5. Tyler Larson (190-G-91) of Barons Riga - 21 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists
6. Rain Raadik (208-C-89) of Valka/Valga - 17 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Edgars Jeromanovs (186-PG-86) of Jurmala - 19 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists
8. Maris Gulbis (200-F-85) of Ventspils - 22 points and 7 rebounds
9. Linards Jaunzems (198-F-95) of LU - 18 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists
10. Rinalds Sirsnins (186-PG-85) of Jekabpils - 18 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists

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)

The Player of the Week awards are presented by Court Side. Court Side is the global leader in basketball management, and is widely regarded as the most dynamic and innovative company of its kind. It was the first Basketball Agency to launch its own website, and the first to have its own database. Court Side has more agents and manpower within its organization, than any other competitor, and its international network of basketball contacts is still unparalleled.
