Round 1 MVP: Mathias Lessort (Crvena zvezda mts)
We have the MVP of the 1st round of the season and it is Crvena zvezda mts big man Mathias Lessort. Lessort dominated the court during the home game of his team against Mornar.
At the match of the 1st round between Crvena zvezda mts and Mornar, Mathias Lessort achieved 22 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, just as many steals and a block and a valuation of 30 in only 26 minutes spent on court. Only Luka Žorić of Cibona had a higher valuation this round (34), but his team has lost the game in Sremska Mitrovica against Mega Bemax, while Damjan Stojanovski of MZT Skopje Aerodrom had the same index as Lessort, but collected it in more minutes spent on court than the Zvezda’s Frenchman.
Therefore, fact that Lessort did not use his quality just to rise on the top of the statistical categories, but also helped his team to beat Mornar in limited playing time, is what earned him the MVP of the round honours.
