The Indiana Pacers rookie Goga Bitadze had one of the best moments in his young NBA career, as he blocked LeBron James’ layup in the first quarter of the game between the Indiana Pacers and Los Angeles Lakers.

Goga Bitadze gets enough play time in the Orlando “bubble” due to Pacers’ starting center Domantas Sabonis being out with an injury.

The center from Georgia is averaging 3.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 8.4 minutes per contest. The Indiana Pacers selected Bitadze as the 18th pick of the 2019 NBA draft.
