  follow us on Facebook Twitter

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

Alexey Shved
Alexey Shved
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Alexey Shved (198-88, agency: Alti Sport, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Minnesota Timberwolves (18-29) in their last game. Despite Shved's very good performance the Minnesota Timberwolves lost 100-111 on the road to the Los Angeles Lakers. He was the top scorer with 18 points. Shved also added 4 rebounds and dished 6 assists in 27 minutes on the court. It was Timberwolves' third consecutive loss in a row. Shved has relatively good stats this year: 10.7ppg, 2.6rpg, 4.4apg, 2FGP: 43.3%, 3FGP: 31.0% and FT: 73.4% in the 42 games he played so far.

Andrei Kirilenko
   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Andrei Kirilenko (209-81, currently plays in NBA) is a teammate of previously mentioned Alexey Shved. But that was another game of his team in NBA which we would like to mention. Kirilenko led Minnesota Timberwolves to an easy victory against the New Orleans Hornets (17-33) crushing them 115-86. He recorded 12 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. The Minnesota Timberwolves have 18-29 record this season. It's Kirilenko's first year with the team.
