Brimah’s block led to a shot violation call on Raptors and Fort Wayne Guard Brian Bowen II converted one of two free throws, caught the ensuing rebound and scored both free throws after getting fouled battling for the rebound.

This marks another encouraging performance from Brimah who has played just three of eight games for Fort Wayne due to a late arrival to the bubble.
