Playoffs, Game 3 bwin MVP: Kostas Vasiliadis, Gescrap BB
In the most important win in club history, Gescrap BB sharpshooter Kostas Vasiliadis was the star that shined brightest. Vasiliadis drained 4 of 8 from downtown en route to 20 points as the Men in Black routed mighty CSKA Moscow 94-81 for a win in Gescrap’s first-ever playoff game at home. In addition to the win, Vasiliadis can also celebrate being the Playoffs Game 3 bwin MVP. He got his team going early by sparking a 12-0 first-quarter run and continued pumping in baskets the rest of the night. Vasiliadis finished with 6 rebounds and 2 assists in racking up the highest performance index rating of any player on a winning team in Game 3 of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Playoffs – 21. In doing so, Vasiliadis joined teammate Aaron Jackson as the only Gescrap players to have achieved this distinction. Jackson was bwin MVP for Top 16, Week 4. Ironically, the highest index of the week came from the team Vasiliadis and co. defeated. Nenad Krstic was perfect from the field in scoring 22 points as he recorded an index of 25. Next on the list is Olympiacos guard Kostas Sloukas, who had a 20 index in his team’s 75-55 win over Montepaschi Siena. Sloukas missed just 1 shot in scoring 11 points and added 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. Rounding out the list of the week’s top performers were Jackson, Juan Carlos Navarro of FC Barcelona Regal and Dimitris Diamantidis of Panathinaikos, all with index ratings of 19. Jackson had 13 points, 8 assists and 2 steals in Gescrap’s win. Navarro helped Barcelona sweep its series against Kazan with 21 points and 3 assists. And Diamantidis, the reigning Euroleague MVP, collected 10 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals in a 65-62 loss at Maccabi Electra.

The playoffs leaders in assists are Diamantidis and Barcelona’s Marcelinho Huertas with 6.3 per game each.
