Quarterfinal Playoffs Game 4 MVP: Terrell McIntyre, Montepaschi Siena
His team may not have reached the Final Four, but one of the Euroleague's newest superstars went out of the playoffs with a bang in Game 4 on Thursday. Point guard Terrell McIntyre of Montepaschi Siena not only won MVP honors for Quarterfinal Playoffs, Game 4 despite his team's elimination by Panathinaikos, but he did so while posting the highest single-game scoring total all season in the Euroleague: 35 points. Whether shooting from deep or driving to the basket, McIntyre was impossible to stop during his 37 minutes on the floor Thursday. He buried 6 of 11 shots from long-range, 5 of 6 two-pointers and all of his 7 free throw attempts without a miss. To his 35 points, McIntyre added 3 rebounds, 3 assists, a steal and 5 fouls drawn for a performance index rating of 37. Following him came another rising superstar, Ioannis Bourousis of Olympiacos, who led the Reds to the Final Four for the first time in 10 years thanks to his monster performance in a 75-78 road win against Real Madrid. Bourousis had 25 points on 9-for-11 two-point shooting while he collected 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks and 7 fouls drawn for a 35 index rating. Euroleague top scorer Igor Rakocevic of Tau Ceramica registered a 23 index rating despite his team's home loss against Regal FC Barcelona. Rakocevic had 21 points, 4 assists and 7 fouls drawn. Roger Grimau of Barcelona followed with a 20 index rating and Nikola Pekovic of Panathinaikos with 19 to complete the top individual performances of Quarterfinal Playoffs Game 4.
Individual highs: Vassilis Spanoulis of Panathinaikos, 10 assists
McIntyre was also the Game 4 top scorer with 35 points against Panathinaikos. He finished his season atop the scoring table for the playoffs, at 24.7 points per game, more than five points ahead everyone else. Felipe Reyes of Real Madrid pulled down 10 rebounds in his team's home loss against Olympiacos. Reyes is also the playoffs' best rebounder at 8.8 per night. Vassilis Spanoulis of Panathinaikos was the only player to reach double digits in assists by dishing 10 against Montepaschi. Theo Papaloukas of Olympiacos leads the playoffs with 6.3 assists per night. Shaun Stonerook collected 4 steals, the most in Game 4, and also leads the playoffs in that category (2.5 spg.). His teammate Benjamin Eze had 4 blocks against Panathinaikos, whose forward Antonis Fotsis leads the playoffs with 1.75 rejections per game.
