Austin Spurs have clinched top spot in the NBA Gatorade League’s Western Conference and has earned a bye when the postseason first round commences on March 27.
As such, the shock 105-109 loss to Memphis Hustle will carries little impact on the outlook of the team in the immediate future.
However, with the postseason fast approaching, team managers will be looking out for positives to build on for the task ahead.
One of such positives is the play of Ghana Center Amida Brimah who continues to make a strong case for Austin’s starting Center spot.
Brimah starred in his defensive role by registering six blocks, nine rebounds and two points; he attempted just shots from the field in 17 minutes from the bench.
His blocks tally paced the game and maintains his spot as the top shot blocker in the league with 2.7 rejections per game this season.
The Spurs play Oklahoma City Blue and South Bay Lakers in the final regular season games.
