Ukrainian basketballer Oleksiy Len has had his first game in the NBA as a member of Washington Wizards.
Last week, Len left Toronto Raptors. Nonetheless, in two days he finished up signing with the Wizards. Yesterday his club faced San Antonio Spurts. Len spent 20 minutes and 40 seconds on the court: in that period of time, he was able to score 11 points, make five rebounds, one assist, one interception with one foul, and two losses.
"I have received good impressions of the game. I tried to interact with my teammates, feel the game with them, get acquainted with combinations, etc. I cannot say that I am surprised by anything. This is my eighth year in the NBA. I have seen quite a lot. However, it will take me some time to learn the principles of the team's game in defense. In addition, you need to understand the way your guys play," Len stated.
As we reported earlier, Oleksandr Usyk and Joe Joyce might face each other for the WBO interim heavyweight championship.
If the fight takes place, it would allow Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury to hold a unification bout with all major belts on the line.
