Last night, when Memphis Grizzlies center Jonas Valanciunas fouled out of the team’s play-in game against the Golden State Warriors, former Spartan Xavier Tillman was called upon to close out a tough game that went into overtime, and he delivered.

This was easily the biggest stage Tillman has been on as an NBA player, and the player who many felt was snubbed in the draft and taken in the second round showed out in a big way and helped lead his team to a 117-112 victory.

After the game, his longtime friend, fellow Spartan and former teammate Jaren Jackson Jr. shared a powerful moment with Xavier Tillman following the biggest night of his career thus far.
