One former Boston Celtics point guard had himself a display during his latest play at the FIBA AmeriCup.

Tremont Waters, who was selected by the Celtics with the 51st overall draft selection in the 2019 NBA Draft, is now representing Puerto Rico’s National Team in the FIBA AmeriCup on Saturday.

The 24-year-old Louisiana State University product finished tied as the leading scorer for Puerto Rico en route to an 88-82 victory over the Dominican Republic. Waters scored 20 points with five rebounds, seven assists, and three steals on 6-for-10 shooting from the field and a perfect 8-for-8 from the free-throw line — named the Player of the game.
