The 2022-23 season of the EuroLeague has arguably been the most intense and the closest in the tournament's history. It could not happen without some clutch performances from multiple players in the league.

The EuroLeague has published a list of the most prolific clutch scorers so far, judging by the number of points scored during closed games (the difference between the teams is 5 points or less) in the last 5 minutes of the game or during overtime.

Panathinaikos Athens' forward Dwayne Bacon tops the list with 43 points scored in 35 possessions for an average of 1.23 points per possession. Only three players from the Top 10 are more effective in late situations than Bacon - Edgaras Ulanovas (7th) with an impressive 1.41 points per possession, Elie Okobo (8th) with an average of 1.36, and Luca Vildoza (6th) with 1.24.
