Victor Claver wins Eurocup with Valencia

5

On Sunday in parallel to the Lakers - Thunder game, Power Electronics Valencia beat Alba Berlin in a low-scoring Eurocup Final (2nd international league in Europe) with 67-44. Blazers 2009 first round pick Victor Claver had a decent final with 4 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals but missed all his 4 threes (very bad three point shooting game in general). His highlights of the game might have been a scene where he stole the ball and went coast to coast in transition for a layup, as well as another steal close to the end where he toyed with his defender on an around the back dribble. He showed a good ability and effort boxing out, was moving very quick for a 6'10" forward, and in general looked fluid again, but wasn't much of a deciding factor. Australian forward Matt Nielsen was named MVP of the Final Four. He had 7 points and 6 rebounds in the final match. 7'2" center Kosta Perovic, a former second round draft pick of the Golden State Warriors, also had a strong game for Valencia with 17 points and 4 rebounds. 2007 Blazers second round draft pick Derrick Byars (immediately traded to Philadelphia, then going from team to team) was the best player for Berlin in a pretty abysmal team performance with 9 points and 3 rebounds together with German national team PG Steffen Hamann (also 9 points). Trail Blazer Rudy Fernandez won the Eurocup/ULEB Cup with Joventut Badalona in 2008.
