Ex-Celtics forward Juancho Hernangomez gets 9 points, 7 boards vs. Georgia for Spain in EuroBasket play

Bo Cruz had things under control in the Spanish National Team’s 90-64 drubbing of the Georgian National Team in EuroBasket play on Saturday, Juancho Hernangomez — the star of the Netflix “Hustle” film in which the Spaniard plays Cruz — helping drive Spain to the win over Georgia.

The former Boston Celtics forward put up 9 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists in 21 minutes of play off of the bench, fouling just once with no turnovers in the game. Hernangomez shot 4-of-9 from the field overall, but went just 1-of-5 from beyond the arc and did not get to the free throw line.

The Madrid native last played for the Celtics in the 2021-22 NBA season, having been traded away to the San Antonio Spurs as part of a three-team deal bringing back Bol Bol and PJ Dozier from the Denver Nuggets near the 2022 NBA trade deadline.
