Shane Larkin – the “monster” of the Euroleague Final 4 history

The NBA experience brought to Shane Larkin that spark he needed it to reach the greatness. In the semifinal game won against Fenerbahce, the American guard had an outstanding performance. And it’s not only about the clutch 3 pointers “in your face”, but also about the high percentages on every range. He finished with 4/5 on 2 pointers, 5/9 from the arc and 7/8 from the free-throw. He added 7 assists, 7 rebounds, 2 steals and forced 7 fouls of Fenerbahce players.

Larkin index rate is the highest in the Euroleague Final 4 history: 43. The Efes’ guard passed another American, Trajan Langdon who had 37 efficiency value in 2010 Final 4 when his team CSKA won the 3rd place game in front of Partizan Belgrade. The game finished in overtime (90-88), which makes the performance of Shane Larkin even brighter.
