WLSman Garuba played his third game in the G League registered with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, a team associated with the Rockets in the competition. The Spaniard lowered his performance compared to the previous deadline and finished with five points (2/2 on field goals), 10 rebounds, two assists, three rebounds and a stopper in the 28 minutes he was on track.
All of this contributed to a wide victory over the Austin Spurs by 134-99. The Vipers are undefeated with a score of 6-0 and the opposite happens to them from the older team, which, despite a recent victory against the Bulls, is the worst in the NBA with a score of 2-16.
Garuba’s main drawback in the G League is his concept of team play, which is a positive thing in most competitions, but not there, as most players go to show off and try to make good numbers in order to join the league. In the last game, the Spaniard scored 18 points with 8/10 in shots and 11 rebounds, six of which were in attack and he managed to convert it into a basket. In front of Tottenham, he only looked at the basket twice, but his defensive efforts were outstanding.
The former Real Madrid player is playing at a good level and is likely to return soon to the Rockets’ system, with coach Stephen Silas being questioned fiercely. If he is sent off, most of the young players on the squad will have to start almost from scratch to try to impress the new coach.
