He also added 5 assists and 2 blocks in 40 minutes. They ended the series of eight consecutive victories. Tskitishvili's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. Tskitishvili is ranked sixth on the list of the best rebounders in the league and also on the list of best blockers (second place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Tskitishvili averages: 18.6ppg, 11.2rpg, 2.2apg, 2.7bpg and 1.1spg in the 11 games.

There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. This year Pullen has relatively solid stats: 13.0ppg, 1.5rpg, 4.1apg and 1.1spg in the 18 games. He is a naturalized American. Pullen is also Georgian national team player.
