Dynamo's Fotsis breaks all-time rebounds record!
March 21, 2007
A historical night that saw Dynamo Moscow reach the Quarterfinal Playoffs in its debut Euroleague season came with a major protagonist. Power forward Antonis Fotsis broke the all-time Euroleague record for most rebounds in a single game by pulling 24 boards during Dynamo's dramatic, do-or-die 68-65 overtime victory against Benetton Treviso at home in Moscow on Wednesday. Fotsis also scored 22 points for Dynamo, including the only 3 in the final minute of regulation, forcing the extra period. The rebounds record had belonged to Mirsad Turkcan, then of CSKA Moscow, who had grabbed 23 in an 88-83 regular season home win against Buducnost on January 10, 2002. Fotsis joins Turkcan in a select club of players who have taken at least 20 rebounds in a Euroleague Basketball game. The others are Florent Pietrus, Dejan Milojevic and one of Dynamo's opponents on Wednesday, Spencer Nelson.
It comes as no surprise that Dynamo outrebounded Benetton 56-27 as a team to get its all-important, playoff-clinching victory. Fotsis pulled down 15 defensive rebounds and 9 in offense. Turkcan still ties with Joseph Blair for most defensive rebounds in a Euroleague Basketball game with 17 apiece while Gregor Fucka, Travis Watson and Quadre Lollis share the record for most offensive rebounds with 11 each.
His performance also gave Fotsis just the third 20-20 performance in Euroleague history, too. Turkcan had 27 points and 23 rebounds in that CSKA-Buducnost game in 2002, while Nelson had 23 points and 20 rebounds playing for GHP Bamberg against his current team, Benetton Treviso, on December 22, 2005.
