In the battle of the bigs, Brimah will be matched up with Vipers Chinese Center Zhou Qi; Brimah stands 6 foot 11 inches while Qi stands 7 foot 1 inch.
Both players are highly rated for their rim protection and defensive plays as Brimah has translated in a regular season league leading shot blocking title.
Qi’s impressive plays in the G League have earned him several call ups to Vipers NBA affiliate side Houston Rockets.
Brimah goes into the game averaging 6.6 points, 74 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game; Spurs were not involved in the opening round of the playoffs.
On the other hand, Qi is averaging 11 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game and recently registered a nine points and six rebounds in Vipers 107-100 win over Taxas Legends in the playoffs first round.
