Jordan Farmar Wins Week Three Euroleague MVP

Jordan Farmar delivered his finest performance to date since joining Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv over the summer to lead the Israeli champs to an 88-82 victory over Real Madrid and earn Week 3 bwin MVP honors.

In a highly-anticipated showdown against the team Macccabi bested in the semifinals at last season’s Final Four in Barcelona, Farmar came through using his speed, shot making ability and ball handling skills to post big numbers.

Farmar finished with 27 points on 9-of-11 two-point shooting, made his only three-point attempt, and added 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 8 fouls drawn for a performance index rating of 35, which was best in the Euroleague this week.
