A breathtaking start for Bennedict Mathurin with the Pacers
Bennedict Mathurin made his NBA debut last night with the Indiana Pacers in a 114-107 loss to the Washington Wizards.
Sixth pick overall in the last draft, the Montreal North native finished the game with 19 points, a good start for his first career game.
“Of course I prepared for this match. But whether in the Summer League, the preparatory games or the first game of the season, I had the same mentality. I am focused before each game to give my maximum defensively and offensively, ”admitted the North Montrealer to RDS after the meeting.
Mathurin allowed the Pacers to believe in it late in the game with a 3-point basket, despite the pressure.
Mathurin and the Pacers’ next game is Friday against the San Antonio Spurs at 7 p.m.
