Anadolu Efes Istanbul rallied against Olympiacos Piraeus on Thursday night for its fourth consecutive victory and did it behind its star trio of Vasilije Micic, Rodrigue Beaubois and Will Clyburn.
Dominant trio paced Efes to fourth straight win
Micic opened the game with 2 turnovers in the first 80 seconds and even though Coach Ergin Ataman pulled him out of the game, as soon as he returned later in the quarter, he had this third turnover.
However, that was the end of his turnover problem. Micic did not commit another one the rest of the game, while scoring 18 points, dishing 9 assists and pulling down 9 rebounds.
But before he took over leading his team, Micic first joined the other two of his teammates to get Efes going.

"In the second half, I felt we have several capable players, starting with Roddy [Beaubois] and Will [Clyburn], that they can find their rhythm so I can follow them," Micic explained.
Clyburn was the one who led all the players in the game with 24 points, shooting 4-for-8 from long range, and also had 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. Beaubois netted 5-of-6 three-pointers, finishing with 19 points and 6 rebounds.
The trio finished the game scoring 61 of the team's 82 points while knocking down 12 of Efes's 15 three-pointers. Micic, Clyburn and Beaubois pulled down 20 of the team's 29 rebounds and dished 13 of the team's 18 assists.
