NBA :

Shane Larkin is only playing for the 4th year in the Euroleague, but he has already managed to go down in history as the player with the most points in a match with 49!

The American is a regular “machine gun” and despite his late start and several problems with his knees, he shows again why he is a fantastic player.

In the recent match with Olympiakos in Polis, the 28-year-old scored 21 points (2/4 two points, 4/8 three points, 5/6 shots), with 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals in 31:47 ′, being the reason that Efes overturned in the second period the 11-26 of the first.

This was his third best performance this year in the 18 matches he has given this year, after the 23 against Barcelona and the Red Star, averaging 15.1 points and 4.4 assists.

Larkin has “killed” at least once all the Euroleague teams. However, it seems that he has been doing well with Olympiakos since 2016, when he entered the league with Baskonia.

After 8 matches with the Spanish team (2016/17) and Efes (2018-) against the red and whites, the American has managed to keep his average VERY high. Specifically, he has 19.6 points and 4.5 assists, always being “double digit”.

His 11 points in the 2018/19 season is his lowest performance against Olympiakos, while 40 at the -early- end of last year is the best, in an appearance that made him the only player in history with two “40s”!

As for his record, it is 5-3, with 2 defeats concerning his year with Baskonia, having since then with his current team 5-1.
