His late-game dominance in Anadolu Efes Istanbul's come-from-behind 82-71 home win over Olympiacos Piraeus has earned Vasilije Micic the MVP honor for Round 11. Micic flirted with a triple-double on the way to a performance index rating of 31, the highest among winning players on Thursday or Friday. He finished with 18 points, 11 of them as Efes rallied in the fourth quarter, to go with 9 assists and a career-high 9 rebounds. This marks the 10th MVP of the Round honor in Micic's career, tying him for third all-time.
Round 11's highest PIR was 43 by Lorenzo Brown of Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv, but because his team lost, we was not eligible to be the MVP. Brown tied for the highest single-game PIR this season. He made 11 of 14 two-point shots and 11 of 12 free throws for a career-high 36 points, the second-highest total ever by a Maccabi player, but his team lost 98-89 at FC Bayern Munich. Two more players with higher PIRs than Micic whose teams lost came next. Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade center Mathias Lessort had 22 points on 8-for-9 two-point shooting plus 10 rebounds for a PIR of 37 in a 96-100 overtime home loss to Valencia Basket. Brandon Davies of EA7 Emporio Armani Milan posted a PIR of 33 based on 23 points and 12 rebounds in a 78-62 defeat at Cazoo Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz. Another winner, Derrick Williams of Panathinaikos Athens finished fifth in Round 11 with a PIR of 30. Williams scored 25 points and pulled 10 rebounds as the Greens defeated host Zalgiris Kaunas 67-81.
