The 23-year-old power forward, who performed at a high level at EuroBasket 2022 with Georgia, had a solid performance of 11 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists in just 12 minutes on the court, shooting 4/5 from the field.
After the 128-120 victory, Gregg Popovich had nothing but good words for him. “He is a talented kid. We like his game. He has got really good athleticism. He is a player who knows how to play the game. He plays the European style, and that’s movement. He’s smart, so I was thrilled for him. He did a good job for us”, the legendary head coach stated.
The Georgian talent had to go against Nikola Jokic, who put up a triple-double of 37 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists in his team’s defeat. Following the win, the former Milwaukee Bucks player spoke about the Joker. “One of the best European players to ever play, you can put him in that category already. Two MVPs, maybe a third one. And I’ve heard he’s just a great guy”, Sandro Mamukelashvili said.
