Dario Saric: In Saric's only game this week, he went head-to-head with Vasilije Micic's new club, Crvena Zvezda, in Euroleague play. Dario had an efficient day, shooting 5-of-7 from the field, including sinking his lone three-point attempt, to go along with four boards in 23 minutes. Oh right, and he nailed a game-winning shot that made a young fan faint. We've reached out to the club and are awaiting comment on how Shamus is doing.
Another player's performance that was of note (for bad reason) was teammate Furkan Korkmaz, who went 1-of-5 from long range in 16 minutes.
Efes is now into the second stage of Euroleague play, and meets with Turkey's Favorite Son Furkan Aldemir (with teammate Scottie Wilbekin) and his new club Darussafaka on Jan. 14.
Vasilije Micic: In the showdown against pseudo-teammate and fellow EuroSixer Dario Saric, Micic put on a solid performance. He went for six points and six assists in 16 minutes, which is one of the largest single-game samples we have from him this season. His fans all remained conscious from start-to-finish (as far as we know), but if you're in deep enough to be reading this, chances are that 16 minutes of Second Stage Euroleague play for a Serbian second-round pick excites you.
Let's hope his role continues to grow, so we can have consistently larger sample sizes to dissect going forward.
