Willy Hernangomez scored 14 points in a Sunday start, rounding out his line with three rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer against the Celtics.
Hernangomez also went 3-for-4, proving his 3-of-10 mark from the line in the opener was an anomaly. The youngster played 18 minutes with Cody Zeller getting the night off and looks to be the clear frontrunner for the backup center job, assuming he can't overtake Zeller before preseason ends. Bismack Biyombo played 10 minutes after getting DNP'd on Friday and doesn't look like he'll factor in.
