Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Brazilians who are currently playing abroad.


Augusto Lima
Augusto Lima
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Augusto Lima (207-91, currently plays in Lithuania). He led Zalgiris to a victory against the closely-ranked Neptunas (18-15) 81-77 in the Lithuanian LKL in Saturday night's game. Lima scored 12 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and made 2 blocks in a mere 17 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. B.C. Zalgiris Kaunas (30-3) is placed first in the LKL. It was his team's eighth consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Lima's first season with the team. This year he averages: 6.3ppg, 4.6rpg, 2FGP: 69.4%(75-108) in 29 games he played so far. Lima is currently a member of the Brazilian senior national team.

He was the second best scorer with 17 points. Machado also added 3 assists in 27 minutes. But the bottom-ranked La ICL Manresa lost 90-95 in Madrid to the much higher-ranked (#10) Movil Estudiantes.

Felicio scored only 4 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. The Chicago Bulls have 41-41 record this season. There are only three games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season.

Lucas Nogueira
Lucas Nogueira
   #9. Former international center Lucas Nogueira (213-92, currently plays in NBA) couldn't help the Toronto Raptors (51-31) in their game against the Milwaukee Bucks (42-40) in the NBA.

His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. Tavernari averaged so far 10.1ppg and 4.6rpg.

The list of other players, who all have Brazilian passport but never been selected to any of Brazilian national teams:

   #1. Bruno Caboclo (206-SF-95, currently plays in NBA) led Toronto Raptors to an easy victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers (51-31) 98-83 in the NBA on Wednesday night. Caboclo scored 11 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The Toronto Raptors have a solid 51-31 record this season. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row.

   #2. Experienced Kazuya Hatano (192-F-82, currently plays in Japan) could not help Ryukyu GK (25-28) in their last game.

It was Ryukyu GK's third consecutive loss in a row. Hatano has averaged so far 2.9ppg and 2.6rpg in 51 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Brazilian and Japanese.
