I ex­pect to start against Hous­ton – Aminu

Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Mansur Abubakar

Nige­rian NBA star Al Farouq Aminu says he ex­pects to start to­day’s game against Hous­ton.

Aminu who logged just 19 min­utes two weeks ago against the Kings, scor­ing four points on 1-of-1 shoot­ing with two re­bounds and three steals, found more play­ing time last weekend against The Phoenix Suns due to the in­jury of team­mate Anthony Davies.

The player made the rev­e­la­tion via his twit­ter han­dle yes­ter­day, say­ing “big game against Hous­ton to­mor­row, wish us luck guys and hope to play my part in the win, will be happy to start the game”

The for­mer LA Clip­pers player who was one of Nigeria’s top per­form­ers at last year’s Afrobas­ket Tour­na­ment with 11.9 points, 5.7 re­bounds and 5.3 as­sists per game hasn’t been get­ting enough play­ing time this sea­son due to the pres­ence of Tyreke Evans who joined the Pel­i­cans from the Sacra­mento Kings.
