Ghana Center Amida Brimah has a big chance to clinch the Western Conference title tonight when his Austin Spurs side takes on South Bay Lakers in the conference final.
This is Brimah’s first shot at clinching a title after turning professional last year following a four year stay at University of Connecticut.
In College, Brimah won the National College Championship in 2014 captaining the team in his final year before graduating.
The Spurs will be involved in its second game in the playoffs after earning a first round bye and beating Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the second round.
South Bay on the other hand has survived two previous rounds heading to tonight’s game including a 126-109 win over Reno Bighorns.
The game has three players who were in the running for Defensive Player of the Year this season in Brimah and Lakers duo Alex Caruso and Demarcus Holland.
The trio missed out on the award as Landry Nnoko of Grand Rapids Drive was voted for by G League General Managers and Coaches.
