Daniel Hackett turned in his best game of the season on Wednesday in the Greek capital to lead CSKA Moscow to a rout of Panathinaikos OPAP Athens and pick up MVP of the Round honors to boot.
The 34-year-old guard shined with 17 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists as CSKA cruised to a 74-98 victory. Hackett made 2 of 3 two-pointers, shot 4 for 6 from downtown and made his lone free throw attempt. He also blocked a shot in compiling a performance index rating of 26, which was the highest among all players on winning teams in Round 20. This marked the first time in Hackett’s decade in the EuroLeague that he has earned MVP of the Round honors.
