Calathes sets Final Four assist record
Calathes totaled 22 assists at the Final Four, which bested the mark set by Facu Campazzo of Real Madrid at the 2019 Final Four in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. His 13 assists were second-most in a Final Four game only to Campazzo’s 15-assist effort from the 2019 Third-Place Game.
The competition’s all-time leader in assists, Calathes took his career total to 1,711. Calathes is the only player in the past decade to record a triple-double in EuroLeague action and he flirted with another by amassing 9 points and 8 rebounds together with his 13 assists against Olympiacos.
