Ghana and Indiana Pacers centre Amida Brimah made history by becoming the first ever Ghanaian to score points in the NBA.
The 6’10 rim protector registered his first points through a lay up from a T.J McConnell assist and followed that up with an alley- oop dunk enroute to a 6 points and 3 rebounds night and 2 blocked shots.

Brimah played 8 minutes and 32 seconds in his second NBA appearance in the Pacers loss to the Portland Trailblazers.
He recently signed a two-way contract with the Pacers after multiple stints with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
