Creek bol­sters chances

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Hor­sham bas­ket­ball star Mitch Creek has bol­stered his chances of an NBA callup with con­tin­ued strong per­for­mances in the NBA G League.

Creek had a break­out per­for­mance with a sea­son-high 29 points, help­ing his Long Is­land Nets de­feat the Erie Bay­hawks last week.

He fol­lowed it up with 14 points and eight re­bounds against Rap­tors 905 on Sun­day.

With NBA teams able to ne­go­ti­ate 10-day con­tracts be­tween now and the end of the sea­son, Creek’s strong play has come at a good time.

He is av­er­ag­ing 15 points and 5.5 re­bounds a game this sea­son, and said he was fo­cused on earn­ing the right to play in the NBA.

“That is the only thing that I think about,” he said.

“I want to have that feel­ing. Once I have that then I want to turn that into be­ing out there con­sis­tently.”
