Luka Samanic gets 35 points, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks with Maine Celtics

While you, a fan of the Boston Celtics, may not have thought about 2022 Celtics training camp invitee Luka Samanic, the big man has been putting in work as an affiliate player playing for the Maine Celtics, Boston’s G League development squad based in Portland.

And it has been paying off for the Croatian forward, who just had his best game of the season with Maine. Samanic put up an impressive 35 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal, and 3 blocked shots in 31 minutes of play against the Delaware Bluecoats on Tuesday, shooting a red-hot 14-of-24 from the floor and 4-of-8 from beyond the arc while oddly going just 2-of-4 from the charity stripe.

If you want to get up to speed with how the Zagreb native has been playing, take a look at the clip embedded below courtesy of the G League YouTube Channel.
