Ivica Zubac tied the Los Angeles Clippers franchise record for most field goals in a game without a miss in a win over the Dallas Mavericks. The 23-year-old center finished the game with 21 points and 15 rebounds.

After the game, the Clippers’ superstar Paul George talked about his teammate and his potential to get an even better player in future.

“Zu is like a little brother,” Paul George said, per Farbod Esnaashari of Sports Illustrated. “He’s got a ton of upside. He really has tons of potential. He can do a lot of things. I’ve seen it. I’ve been on the other end when he was with the Lakers and he dominated.”

This season, Zubac is averaging 8.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game for the Clippers.
