A short post this week as we get ready for the NBA season to start.

Tiago Splitter -- Caja Laboral -- ACB

Caja had their first EuroLeague game, and possibly as a sign of things to come, they got drubbed 77-65. And it wasn't that close. They knocked 9 off the lead in the 4th quarter. Tiago had 17 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists, and a block.

In their ACB game, Caja remained undefeated with a 100-81 win over Xacobeo Blu:sens. The 34-10 run in the 4th quarter was the key. Tiago had 20 points going 7-10 from the field and 6-8 from the line. But, he only had 2 rebounds in 25 minutes.


Highlights of the XBS game. Marc Jackson, former Warrio, and Reyshawn Terry play for XBS.

Nando De Colo -- Valencia -- ACB

Valencia's EuroCup fate is in the balance today as they play the Belgian team Dexia Mons-Hainaut in second game of the two game qualifying. In the first game, Valencia got drubbed 78-63.

Valencia went to 3-1 with a 82-65 win over CB Granada on Saturday.

Nando had a modest 9 points, 4 boards, and 4 assists. And 5 steals. Or maybe turnovers. I'm not sure.


Valencia - CB Granada Highlights

Eric Dawson -- Mitsibishi Diamond Dolphins -- JPL

Eric didn't play in either game. It says DNP-CD, but I would find this very surprising.

James Gist -- Unknown

I'm going to guess that James is playing in the D-League. I expect we'll hear something soon.

Robertas Javtokas -- BC Khimki -- Russian League

BC Khimki beat Real Madrid 84-81 to start their EuroLeague season. This is a good win for BC Khimki. Javtokas had 11 points and 8 rebounds, but it was teammate Darjus Lavrinovic with 32 and 11 that carried the team.

Jack McClinton --Aliaga Petkim -- Turkish League

Aliaga Petkim beat %*(C(*# Cooper Tires 82-75. Jack was not shy about getting up shots in his first game with his new team. He took 16 shots. 2-8 from 2-point and 2-8 from 3-point.

Asvel -- Tony is part owner -- French League

Asvel got drubbed by Zalgiris 71-52 which is another bad loss for Tony's team. They also lost another league game 76-66 to Orleans and are now 1-3. Not good for the defending champs.
