Tribute to the Champs: Milos Teodosic
A five-time All-Euroleague selection and former MVP, Milos Teodosic lifted his first Euroleague crown after appearing in his seventh Final Four. Coming off the bench in each game this season, Teodosic posted elite numbers at the reins of CSKA’s historically good offense. Teodosic ranked third in the league in scoring and broke the single-season record by making 77 three-point shots. Five of those came against Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar and Fenerbahce Istanbul at the Final Four in Berlin, where Teodosic displayed some of his best basketball. He was the mastermind of CSKA’s near-perfect first half of the championship game as he seemingly had his fingers in each CSKA score during a 3-24 second quarter run that gave his side a 30-50 lead at halftime. Playing the entire fourth quarter and overtime with 4 personal fouls, Teodosic helped make key plays down the stretch and finished the game with 19 points, 7 assists, 5 rebounds and a game-high performance index rating of 29, but most importantly, ending a long wait to deservingly capture the Euroleague trophy.
