13. Mehmet Okur (Türk Telekom)
Mehmet Okur's soft shooting touch from downtown gave Türk Telekom a narrow win over Pinar Karsiyaka

Mehmet Okur hit a game-winning three-pointer on Tuesday night to lift Turk Telekom to victory at Pinar Karsiyaka.

With Turkish basketball still talking about the 50-point explosion by Okur's former Utah Jazz teammate Deron Williams for Besiktas last week, Okur capped another solid performance with a long-range shot that gave the Ankara team an 83-81 triumph on Tuesday.

The result had left both sides with 2-2 records in Group G.

Utah Jazz big man Okur, like New Jersey Nets guard Williams, is to soon head back to the United States following Saturday's announcement that the lockout is set to end this week.

Okur had 14 points and 10 rebounds in Izmir against Karsiyaka.

His free-throw had given Turk Telekom an 80-79 advantage with 31 seconds to go but Karsiyaka went in front when Alper Saruhan hit a jump shot.

After a timeout by the visitors, Okur caught a pass by Muratcan Güler and hit the shot from the arc with nine seconds to play for a two-point lead.

Mire Chatman of Karsiyaka had an opportunity to put the home side back in front but his three-pointer was off target.

Darius Washington scored 19 points and Muratcan Güler had 13 along with eight rebounds and six assists.
