Euroleague highlights from Week 5

I am unable to post the video, but I will give you a link to highlights from Week 5 in Euroleague, which includes glimpses of Serge Ibaka and Rudy Fernandez. The video is here.

Also, I again recommend giving a read to Nick Gibson’s Euroleague 101 column from yesterday. At a certain point, basketball-starved Americans are going to want to keep an eye on what is happening across the pond.

CSKA Moscow (with Andrei Kirilenko filling the stat sheet, and Nenad Krstic (14.0 ppg) leading the team in scoring) and FC Barcelona (with Marcelinho Huertas averaging nearly 7 assists per game in a league where statisticians are stingy in crediting assists) are the two remaining undefeated teams. (They are not scheduled to meet in the 10-week opening round).

And one other thing: Tonight is opening night in the Chinese Basketball Association. Guan Weijia in Beijing wrote a nice column setting up the CBA season and bringing y’all up to speed on which American players have gone to the other side of the globe to ply their trade.
