Basketballghana.com can report Ghana Center Amida Brimah has registered a double double in his first game for Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the NBA Gatorade League (G League).
After missing out on last season due to an ACL injury and five games this season after quarantining for eight days following his late arrival to the bubble to personal reasons, Brimah delivered on his debut.
The 6 foot 10 inch defender registered 12 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in 22 minutes off the bench in a 109-113 loss to Santa Cruz Warriors that featured 2018 NBA Champions Jeremy Lin who scored 27 points.
Amida shot the ball fairly well in the game converting four seven shots from two point range, attempting no three point shot and making two of four free throw attempts. Five of his rebounds tally came on the offensive end.
Point Guard Jalen Lecque led Fort Wayne with 21 points as Mad Ants lost its fifth game in six outings. The team plays Iowa Wolves next on Saturday, February 20.
