Playing against the Warriors also marked Brimah’s first game in the G League since March, 2019 when he featured for Austin Spurs. The 6 foot 10 inch player spent two years at Austin and won the 2018 league title.

He was due to play in last season’s G League campaign but an ACL injury ruled him out completely from competing. Brimah registered his 271st block in G League history.
