Papagiannis tied his personal best with 18 points, making 8-of-9 two points shots, and also posted 13 rebounds and 4 blocks, both of them the second-best totals of his career.

Darrun Hilliard of FC Bayern Munich had a PIR of 30 in a road loss against his former team, CSKA Moscow. Hilliard netted 28 points on 6-for-10 three-point shooting and had 5 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks.

The next-best PIR, 29, belonged to Shane Larkin of Anadolu Efes Istanbul, whose 25 points, 7 assists and 2 steals paced a road win over city rival Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul. Scottie Wilbekin of Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv and Shavon Shields of AX Armani Exchange Milan, each with a PIR of 28 in losing efforts, completed the top individual performances in Round 12.
