Ghana Center Amida Brimah blocked his way into helping Brooklyn Nets clinch its semifinal berth in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
The 6 foot 11 inch defender delivered four blocks as Brooklyn beat Detroit 105-85 in the quarterfinals played on Saturday, July 13.
Brimah came off the bench and played 13 minutes behind starter Jarrett Allen who led all players with 30 points and 11 rebounds and two blocks.
Amida recorded four points, six rebounds, four blocks and an assist in the easy win for the Nets. The former University of Connecticut Captain’s important production was marred by committing three turnovers.
Brooklyn made it to the quarterfinals as the seventh seed thanks to winning three of four games at the preliminary stage.
The Nets upset second seed Pistons to reach the semis and will play Minnesota Timberwolves later tonight for a place in the finals.
Minnesota beat Dallas Mavericks 108-82. Brimah has played at Austin Spurs in the NBA Gatorade League in his two year professional career.
