The Spanish rookie had a career-high 24 points and added 13 rebounds. Derrick Rose also scored 24 points and Lithuanian Mindaugas Kuzminskas had 19 points starting in place of Carmelo Anthony, who missed his second straight game with a sore left knee.

Latvian “unicorn” Kristaps Porzingis had 12 points while being limited to 26 minutes due to foul trouble. He picked up his third foul with 3 minutes remaining in the first quarter and his fifth a minute into the fourth but did not foul out. For the winners, Hernangomez’s idol Pau Gasol had a double double (19 p. 10 r.,) and French star Tony Parker added 10 points.

The most crucial game of the day was Washington’s win over Cleveland (127-115) that gives to Boston the chance to finish the regular season at the top of the East. For the winners, Polish Marcin Gortat had 10 points and 5 rebounds, French Ian Mahinmi had one rebound and one steal and Czech Tomas Satoransky added 2 points.  Here’s the rest of last night’s results and the euro-scorers.
