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)
