Austin Spurs will be in action tonight in the NBA Gatorade League (G League) when the side takes on Memphis Hustle. Ghana Center Amida Brimah plays for Austin and leads the league in blocked shots averaging 2.7 swats per game.
The game will be the first for Austin at its home arena-HEB Center after a long road trip playing games from home. The team has played against the likes of Santa Cruz Warriors, Salt Lake City Stars and Agua Caliente Clippers.
Despite playing away from home, the team has climbed to the Western Conference standings summit winning six straight games in the process.
With Spurs winning seven of its last ten games and Memphis winning just three in ten games, Spurs are widely expected to maintain its spot atop the standings.
Austin has 21 wins and 12 losses for the season while Memphis, ranked 12th in the conference, has 13 wins and 20 losses.
2012 NBA Draft 30th pick Marquis Teague plays for Memphis; Marquis is the younger brother of Minnesota Timberwolves Point Guard Jeff Teague.
