Mantas
Kalnietis
26-year old point guard Mantas Kalnietis (195-PG-86, agency: Interperformances) had a great game in the last round for Lokomotiv and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 14.
He had the game-high 35 points adding five rebounds and seven assists for Lokomotiv in his team's victory, helping them to beat Enisey (#7, 5-9) 94-87. Lokomotiv maintains the 3rd position in VTB United League . They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Lokomotiv will need more victories to improve their 10-4 record. Kalnietis turned to be Lokomotiv's top player in his first season with the team. Kalnietis has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in assists (8th best: 4.3apg) and averages solid 65.5% FGP.

Second best performed player last round was Kostas Kaimakoglou (206-C/F-83) of Unics. He is Greek in his first season at Unics. In the last game Kaimakoglou recorded impressive 21 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. It was enough for Unics to edge slightly higher-ranked Khimky (10-4) by 6 points 76-70. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Unics consolidated its place in top 4 of the standings. His team's 10-4 record is not bad at all. Kaimakoglou is a newcomer at Unics and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 14.8ppg (#7). He also registered 5.9 boards per game.

Third place about best performers goes to guard Manny Harris (196-G-89) of Azovmash (#10). Harris scored 24 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Despite Harris' great performance Azovmash lost 58-74 to the higher-ranked Spartak SP (#2, 10-3). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Azovmash can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 2-12 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Harris he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Harris has a very solid season. In 10 games in VTB United League he scored 11.9ppg. He also has 5.0rpg and FGP: 52.3%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Will Daniels (203-F-86) of VEF Riga - 22 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Davon Jefferson (204-F-86) of Enisey - 24 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists
6. Ian Vougioukas (212-C/F-85) of Unics - 13 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Artem Yakovenko (205-F/C-88) of N.Novgorod - 23 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Darjus Lavrinovic (212-C-79) of Zalgiris - 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Nemanja Nedovic (191-PG-91) of Lietuvos rytas - 19 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Dejan Ivanov (205-F/C-86) of Lietuvos rytas - 12 points and 9 rebounds

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)

CSKA Pres Andrey Vatutin talks Teodosic, Spanoulis, Euroleague format - 6 days ago
Andrey Vatutin has multiple accolades as President and CEO of European power-club CSKA Moscow. But winning back-to-back Euroleague titles isn't on his resume. However, a gold medal this weekend in Istanbul will carve his name as the all-time greatest front office executive in Russian hoops. He never takes credit, though. For the same reasons, Vatutin has no desire to pursue current and former NBA interest. "The NBA was never a dream of mine. Besides, I couldn't leave CSKA without winni...   [read more]
