Shane Larkin of Anadolu Efes marks the start of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs by joining Joe Arlauckas on The Crossover.

This season, Larkin helped propel Efes from a last-place finish a year ago to fourth-place in the EuroLeague regular season.

He aided the cause with the single best scoring performance in the EuroLeague since 2013, a 37-point outburst against FC Barcelona Lassa, his team’s playoffs opponent starting Wednesday.
