Petteri Koponen watch: Another start, another win

It was a huge deal around these parts earlier in the week when H.T. informed us that Petteri Koponen had started a game, and gotten 24 minutes of playing time, for his Italian club. If you still don't understand why this is a big deal, read this.

We were cautiously optimistic that Petteri's play would earn him another start and another wad of minutes, but you never know with those crazy Euros. So we were even more excited when H.T. dropped us another update this morning:

Petteri last night:

Start, 24 minutes, 9 points (FG 3-7), 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 turnovers in
75-69 victory over Russian team Samara in FIBA EuroChallenge Cup.

Yes! The Finnagler is indeed starting in the back court with the World's richest midget little person Earl Boykins. If the wins keep coming you have to believe Koponen's respectable burn will continue. Good news for everyone.
