Team of the Week: Kloof, Stockton, Feldeine, Nichols, Jelovac
MIES (Switzerland) - What did we have on Gameday 5 of the Basketball Champions League? It's more like, what did we not have?
There were 4-point plays, rim-rattling dunks, made shots from half-court and plenty of lock-down defending. There was also a nutmeg from Eugene Lawrence! He made it look so easy that we had to show you here.
In the never-ending debate about which players should make the Team of the Week, we've come up with five players that certainly deserve a spot. For those that did not, well, keep on hooping. Your time will come.
Without further ado, here is our fabulous five, our quintessential quintet, for Gameday 5!
Charlon Kloof, Guard
Let us start with this: 7 steals! Kloof is one of those "now you see him, now you don't" pocket-pickers because before you know it, he's taken the ball away from you and raced to the other end for a dunk or pulled up and hit a 3-pointer. Kloof hit one of the shots of the night on Tuesday, stepping over midcourt before burying a shot that stretched UCAM Murcia's lead to 10 and put them on the way to a decisive, 87-68, win at Anwil in Poland. He had 15 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds and a +27 efficiency.
David Stockton, Guard
The whirling dervish of a playmaker at medi Bayreuth, Stockton is well known for his dazzling dimes and quick hands but where he really stood out in an 87-71 triumph over Filou Oostende on Wednesday was his shooting. Stockton positively sizzled, hitting 4 of 6 from long range and 6 of 9 overall en route to 20 points and a +25 efficiency.
James Feldeine, Guard
