We bring you last week's top performances from Russians who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Andrei Kirilenko
Andrei Kirilenko
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Andrei Kirilenko (209-81, currently plays in NBA). He led Minnesota Timberwolves to a victory over the Phoenix Suns (23-50) crushing them 117-86 in the NBA in Friday night's game. Kirilenko was MVP of the game. He scored 20 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 25 minutes on the court. The Minnesota Timberwolves have 26-45 record this season. It's Kirilenko's first year with the team. Kirilenko has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 12.6ppg, 5.6rpg, 2.8apg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 56.1%(210-374), 3FGP: 29.4% and FT: 76.2% in the 53 games he played so far.

He contributed to an easy victory against the league leader BC Rakvere (20-10) crushing them 94-64 in the Estonian KML on Saturday night. Nelyubov had a double-double by scoring 10 points and getting 11 rebounds in 16 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Tartu Ulikool/Rock (19-1) is placed second in the KML. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This year Nelyubov's overall stats are: 7.8ppg, 4.6rpg, 2FGP: 56.2%(41-73) and FT: 75.0% in the 14 games. He played for the Russian university national team in 2011.

But that was another game of his team in NBA which we would like to mention. Shved managed to help Minnesota Timberwolves to win against the Detroit Pistons (24-49) crushing them 105-82. He recorded 5 points and added 7 passes. The Minnesota Timberwolves have 26-45 record this season. It's Shved's first year with the team.

Despite Zakharov's good performance the eighth-placed VOO Verviers-Pepinster was badly defeated 87-67 in Oostende by the leading Base in the Folded group. He was the second best scorer with 14 points. Zakharov also added 4 rebounds in 28 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball.

The list of other players, who all have Russian passport but never been selected to any of Russian national teams:

   #4. Anton Kazarnovski (205-F/C-85, currently plays in Israel) was the major contributor in a Hapoel Kazrin's victory against one of league's weakest teams Maccabi K/G (5-18) 81-62 in the Israeli National League (second division) last Thursday. Kazarnovski scored 22 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Kazrin/Galil Elion (11-12) is placed eighth in the National League. It was his team's first victory after three consecutive loses. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This season Kazarnovski has relatively solid stats: 14.9ppg, 8.7rpg and 2.8apg. He has both Russian and Israeli nationalities. Despite Kazarnovski's Russian passport, he previously played for the Israeli university national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Russian team.

   #5.

This year Adediran has relatively solid stats: 14.6ppg, 6.0rpg, 1.5apg and 1.4spg in the eight games. He also holds two passports: Nigerian and Russian.

   #6. Anton Indrikov (193-G-87, currently plays in Belarus), who plays in the Belarusian Premier League was not able to secure a victory for Rubon (11-15) in their last game on Tuesday.

He has very reliable stats this season: 12.4ppg, 4.9rpg and 1.3bpg. Flis has dual citizenship: Russian and Spanish.
