Slick Nick is the best of Gameday 5

RISHON LE ZION (Basketball Champions League) - Nicolas Minnerath put on a performance for Avtodor Saratov on Wednesday night in Israel that fans of the Russian club will be talking about for a long time.

The 28-year-old American went into the Basketball Champions League clash at Maccabi Rand Media averaging 19.5 points per game but far exceeded that, dunking and shooting his way to a competition high of 39 points in a 98-74 victory for his club.

When all was said and done, he was the MVP of Gameday 5.

Minnerath is not just a high-flying jam artist but also a sweet-shooting big man. He buried 5 of 9 shots from the arc.

Adding in the 8 rebounds that he corralled and the 2 assists that he dished out, the Saratov sensation finished with an eye-popping efficiency of 40.
