Ghana Center Amida Brimah did not attempt a shot in the NBA Gatorade League Final game but came up with a big block that proved key in Austin Spurs win in the Western Conference Final.
Spurs topped South Bay Lakers 104-93 to clinch the title and qualify to the main final which will be played out in a three game series.
Austin’s final opponent will be known later tonight when Raptors 905 take on Erie BayHawks in the Eastern Conference Final; Raptors are the defending G League Champions.
Brimah did not shoot the ball in 15 minutes on the floor but helped his team’s win by contributing six rebounds, an assist, a steal and three blocks.
Four of his rebounds came on the offensive side while starting Center Matt Costello recorded a staggering 11 blocks to set a postseason record.
Brimah and Costello are noted for their blocking ability and they made it count despite their low points; Costello scored six points in 29 minutes.
Austin Point Guard Derrick White led all scorers with 35 points.
