Shane Larkin was unstoppable in his season debut with Anadolu Efes and led his team past ALBA Berlin in overtime (106-105):

“It was a long time coming. It’s been months since I was able to compete in the EuroLeague. It felt good to be out there, felt good to get a win in front of our fans, and happy to be back.

Offensively, we are going to be one of the best teams. We have a lot of great players, a lot of shooters, a lot of guys who can drive, finish around the rim.

So, if we want to get back where we got last year, we have to lock in on the defensive end,” Larkin told EuroLeague.net afterwards.

The American guard finished the game with 26 points (8/16 shooting) and a PIR of 31.
