Nigel Williams-Goss continues his process of adaptation to a Real Madrid that, little by little, is discovering what the American point guard can contribute to the team. After a few hesitant early pre-season games, the former Gonzaga University player seems to have let go and his contest has been fundamental both in the Endesa Super Cup and in the victory in the first league match against Hereda San Pablo Burgos.
The Oregon-born point guard, who is still feeling the pulse of what Pablo Laso is asking him, left one of the images of the day when he jumped to the WiZink Center with some helmets to warm up the team. A way to enter the game at full speed and concentrated to try to contribute to the team from the beginning.
An image that is not strange in him, that he has been doing the same since his time in the Zags with whom he made history in his only season in the NCAA before jumping to Europe.
Against the Burgos team, the American went well with his particular ritual before the crash and finished with nine points, three assists, two rebounds and a steal in 24 minutes. Good numbers in the ACB premiere of a player who arrived last summer as one of the great signings of the course for the Whites.
Pablo Laso knows that he has work ahead with the former Lokomotiv Kuban, although at the moment he is happy with the performance offered: “Nigel Williams-Goss is his first year in the League and it will cost him, but he is improving. I would like to to have one more scoring day to make him feel good. “
