Ghana Center Amida Brimah excelled on defense for San Antonio Spurs game against Milwaukee Bucks in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Despite Spurs losing 75-83 in what has turned out to be the team’s final game in the preseason competition, Brimah went out on a banging note.

The former University of Connecticut Captain delivered four points, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked six shots in 23 minutes.

He did not attempt a free throw in the game but was his usual efficient self scoring on two attempted shots off the bench; Drew Eubanks started at Center for San Antonio.

His block tally paced all players in the game while grabbing four offensive rebounds was Spurs highest mark in the contest.

His play showed a glimpse of what potential NBA teams could benefit with the 6 foot 11 inch Center on their roster. Spurs backup Center spot is open following the departure of Joffrey Lauvergne.

Brimah won last season’s NBA Gatorade League title with Spurs affiliate side Austin and led the league in blocks.
