Play-Off bracket4
Zack Wright gets MVP of the Week award for VTB United League - Jan 8, 2013

Zack Wright
American-Bosnia and Herzegovina Zack Wright (195-G-85) had a very impressive game in the last round for league's second-best Spartak SP and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 10.
The 27-year old guard had the game-high 23 points adding seven rebounds and seven assists for Spartak SP in his team's victory, helping them to crush Lietuvos rytas (#6, 5-5) with 20-point margin 83-63. Spartak SP is placed at 2nd position in VTB United League . They would have been even better if they did not have these two lost games earlier in Regular Season. Spartak SP will need more victories to improve their 7-2 record. It was one of impressive evenings for Wright as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Zack Wright averages this season 6.4ppg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old American forward Derrick Brown (203-F-87) of Lokomotiv. Brown impressed basketball fans with 20 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists. Bad luck as Lokomotiv lost that game 81-89 to the higher-ranked Zalgiris (#1, 9-1). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Lokomotiv still maintains its place in the top 4 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 6-4 record is not bad at all. Brown is a newcomer at Lokomotiv and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.

The third best performed player last round was Canadian Kyle Landry (207-C/F-86) of Triumph (#7). Landry scored 29 points and grabbed five rebounds. Despite Landry's great performance Triumph lost 78-80 to the higher-ranked VEF Riga (#3, 7-3). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Triumph ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 6 games, recording just four victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Landry could help Triumph to bring them higher in the standings. Landry has a great season in VTB United League. After 10 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 6.9rpg (4th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Primoz Brezec (216-F/C-79) of N.Novgorod - 22 points and 7 rebounds
5. Brion Rush (186-G-84) of BC Astana - 22 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists
6. Aliaksandr Kudrautsau (190-SG-80) of Tsmoki-Minsk - 22 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists
7. Bamba Fall (217-C-86) of Kalev/Cramo - 15 points and 8 rebounds
8. Zabian Dowdell (191-PG-84) of Enisey - 20 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists
9. Tremmell Darden (194-G/F-81) of Zalgiris - 12 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Aaron Jackson (190-G-86) of CSKA - 15 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists

The Player of the week is choosen 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)
