Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Montenegrins who are currently playing abroad.


Nikola Vucevic
Nikola Vucevic
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Nikola Vucevic (210-90, college: USC, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Orlando Magic (14-28) in their last game. Despite Vucevic's very good performance the Orlando Magic was edged 97-95 on the road by the Toronto Raptors. He had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 14 rebounds. Vucevic also added 3 blocks in 30 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. It was Magic's fourth consecutive loss in a row. Vucevic is currently fifth on the league's list of best rebounders with 11.1rpg. He also averaged so far 11.8ppg, 1.6apg, 1.2bpg, 2FGP: 52.1% and FT: 67.2% in the 42 games he played so far. Vucevic is currently a member of the Montenegrin senior national team.

Despite Dubljevic's very good performance Valencia Basket was edged 72-69 in Madrid by the much lower-ranked Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (#16). He was the top scorer with 20 points.
