EuroLeague Round 15 MVP: Mike James!
Mike James of CSKA Moscow earned the MVP of the Round honor for the second time in 48 hours, this time for his performance in a thrilling 80-81 road win over Anadolu Efes Istanbul on Friday night.

In a rematch of last season’s Championship Game, James shined by scoring 10 of his 28 points in the final five minutes, including a game-winning jumper with 17 seconds to go. That concluded a near-perfect shooting night, as James made 5-of-5 two-pointers and 5-of-7 triples. He also led CSKA with 6 rebounds and added 4 assists and 5 fouls drawn, accumulating a performance index rating of 36.

It is the fourth MVP honor for James this season, and the sixth of his career. James is only the third player in the EuroLeague to win two MVP of the Round honors in the same week, after Luka Doncic in the 2017-18 season, and Alexey Shved last season. James is also the first player this season to earn back-to-back MVP of the Round honors.
