Triobet BBL Weekly Review: Volume 6

A lot of stories this week, as we‘ve had some truly exciting basketball in the Triobet BBL. Let‘s round it all up in the sixth volume of the Triobet BBL Weekly Review.

 

MVP. Justin Baker has once again proved his play can mean the world to Tarvas. A couple weeks ago, he amassed 29 points, 8 rebounds and 4 steals, and Tarvas was just a shot away from their first win. This time, he was good for an efficiency rating of 29 with 19 points and 10 boards, while Tarvas finally managed to put its‘ losing streak to an end.

RECORDS. They say any publicity is good publicity. But any record is definitely not a good record. Borisfen managed to achieve a couple of those in their game against Valmiera. First of all, they broke their own record of least points scored in a quarter (2), and then points scored in a game (46). Coincidentally, the 60-46 loss was the closest game they’ve had this year in the Triobet BBL.

LLLLLL. Nope, that‘s not a typo. That‘s Borisfen‘s results in their last six meetings. Three blow-out losses by an average of 28.7 points this week now push their record to an abysmal 0-6. Hey, at least they‘re being consistent...

UNDEFEATED? Technically, we still have one unbeaten team in the Triobet BBL in Barsy, after Pieno Zvaigzdes suffered their first loss of the season from league newcomers Ogre Kumho/Tyre. The Kazakhs have yet to play their first game of the season and will remain undefeated at least until the sixth of December, when they play Nevezis.

STREAK. In the meantime, Ogre currently hold the longest winning streak in the league, as they‘ve won four straight after falling short in their first game of the season. The latest win, as we‘ve already mentioned, was against Pieno Zvaigzdes, who hadn‘t lost a single game before facing the Latvians.

MVP II. We’re in for some feisty competition in the Play-offs if Lietkabelis continue playing the way they have. This week Gintaras Leonavicius put up MVP-worthy numbers in the team’s win against Skopje MZT and was named the 7Days Eurocup Player of the Week.
