Spain’s Juancho Hernangomez highlights: Ex-Boston Celtics forward gets 5 points, 4 boards vs. Netherlands

·2 min read

He might not be the next Bo Cruz of the NBA, but Spanish national and Boston Celtics alumnus Juancho Hernangomez helped Spain obliterate the Netherlands National Team, 86-64, in World Cup group stage qualifying on Saturday.

The former Boston swingman put up a respectable 5 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists as a starter in just under 24 minutes of floor time. Hernangomez turned the ball over twice and picked up as many personal fouls, while shooting 2-of-5 from the field overall, 1-of-3 from beyond the arc, and missing both of his free-throw attempts.

The protagonist of “Hustle” might not be quite the star player portrayed in the Netflix film he co-starred with Adam Sandler in, but he is still playing high-level basketball for Spain and, hopefully, this season in Toronto, his new home.
