Author: W. Dawkins
Ex-Knick Alexey Shved Scores 23 In Euroleague

Ex-Knick Alexey Shved poured in 30 points to lead Russia past Great Britain 82-70 at the 2017 FIBA Eurobasket in Istanbul.

 

The 6-6 guard drilled 6 threes, while shooting a blistering 67 percent (6-of-9) from behind the arc and 100 percent (6-of-6) from the line.

 

Shved also had 8 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals in the game.

 

The Brooklyn Nets’ Timofey Mozgov added 11 points and 11 rebounds for Russia (4-1) in the win.

 

For Great Britain (0-5), Dan Clark had 21 points and 6 assists in the loss.

 

But the star of the game was Shved, who is averaging a team-high 23 points and 5.6 assists through five games at the Eurobasket.

 

He comes from Russia’s VTB United League, where he was the league’s leading scorer this season, averaging 23.2 points and team-high 5.2 assists for BC Khimki .

 

Shved was also named the MVP of the 2016-17 Eurocup.

 

The previous season he also played for BC Khimki where he was the team’s top scorer at 17 points a game.

 

In 2014-15, Shved had a breakout NBA season with the Knicks when he averaged 14.8 points in 16 games after coming to the club from the Rockets.

 

That summer, Shved rejected an offer to return to the Knicks to sign a three-year, $10.2 million pact with BC Khimki.

 

According to the Sporting News, the lucrative deal made Shved the highest paid basketball player outside of the NBA.

 

In parts of three NBA seasons with the Wolves, Rockets, Knicks and Sixers, Shved averaged 10.3 points and 2.5 assists.

 

Before coming to the U.S., Shved played with CSKA Moscow, winning the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2010-11 and 2011-12 Russian National Championships.
