Brimah leads G-League in blocks for second season in a row

Brimah and Derrick White with G League title
Ghana Center Amida Brimah has is the 2018-2019 NBA Gatorade League season’s leader in blocked shots after the regular season ended this past weekend.

By winning 20 of 50 games, Austin Spurs have missed the playoffs only a year after clinching the league title thanks a sweep of Raptors 905 in the Finals Series.

Brimah led last season with 2.6 blocks per game and improved his tally in his second season with Spurs by averaging three blocks per game.

In other departments, Brimah improved his numbers averaging 8.8 points, 1.4 assists and eight rebounds this season; last season he averaged 6.6 points and 7.4 rebounds.

After playing 22.6 minutes per game last season, the 6 foot 11 inch player played 23.3 minutes this season in 47 games which led all Spurs players.

However, Brimah’s turnover rate increased leading to concerns about ball security with the former University of Connecticut Captain. He turned the ball over 2.4 times far worse than last season’s 1.3 mark.
