New York Knicks forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas still has a long way to go in the NBA but he is fighting for regular minutes as the season draws nearer.

The Lithuanian posted 18 points, 10 rebounds and also dished out three assists in the Knicks’ 119-107 loss to the Boston Celtics at Madison Square Garden.

Kuzminskas is still trying to find his feet in the NBA, as he adjusts to the pace and physicality but performances like this will go a long way if he keeps it going on a consistent basis.
