CARLOS RIVERA
Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Puerto Ricans who are currently playing abroad.


Carlos Rivera
Carlos Rivera
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced international point guard Carlos Rivera (187-83, college: Hofstra, currently plays in Mexico). He led Fuerza Regia to a victory over the leader Capitanes (26-13) 88-79 in the Mexican LNBP (second division) in Tuesday night's game. Rivera was MVP of the game. He recorded 27 points (!!!), 4 rebounds and 5 assists in 33 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group North. Fuerza Regia Monterrey (31-9) is placed first. Rivera has relatively good stats this year: 13.1ppg, 2.9rpg, 5.2apg, 2FGP: 56.1%(106-189), 3FGP: 45.5%(101-222) and FT: 89.0% in 50 games he played so far. Ex-Atleticos de San German player is currently a member of the Puerto Rican senior national team.

David Huertas
David Huertas
   #2. Second place goes to an international swingman David Huertas (195-87, college: Ole Miss, currently plays in Mexico) is a teammate of previously mentioned Carlos Rivera. But that was another game of his team in Mexican LNBP which we would like to mention. Huertas. He could not help Fuerza Regia (31-9) in their last game on Friday. Despite Huertas' very good performance the first-placed Fuerza Regia (31-9) was edged 94-93 at home by the leading Capitanes in the North group. He was the top scorer with 25 points. Huertas also added 5 passes. Huertas has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 18.5ppg, 3.2rpg, 3.4apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 52.5%, 3FGP: 40.8% and FT: 81.9%. Huertas is in the roster of the Puerto Rican senior national team.

Maurice Harkless
Maurice Harkless
   #3. The Puerto Rican player who performed third best last week abroad was former international swingman Maurice Harkless (203-93, college: St.John's, currently plays in NBA). He was the main contributor in a 3-point Portland Trail Blazers' victory against the Los Angeles Lakers (37-45) 104-101 in the NBA on Tuesday night. Harkless was the best player in that game. He scored 26 points (!!!), grabbed 8 rebounds and made 4 blocks in 34 minutes. The Portland Trail Blazers have a solid 53-29 record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Harkless' fourth year with the team. This season Harkless has relatively solid stats: 7.7ppg, 4.5rpg, 1.2apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 58.2%(156-268), 3FGP: 27.5% and FT: 67.1% in 60 games. He has a dual citizenship: Puerto Rican and American. Harkless played for the Puerto Rican national team three years ago. Strangely he has never played in Puerto Rico.

Shabazz Napier
Shabazz Napier
   #4. Point guard Shabazz Napier (185-91, college: Connecticut, currently plays in NBA) was the major contributor in a Brooklyn Nets' victory against the Miami Heat (39-43) 113-94 in the NBA in Wednesday night's game. Napier scored 20 points, had 5 rebounds and dished 5 assists. The Brooklyn Nets have 42-40 record this season. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. It's Napier's first year with the team. He has reliable stats this season: 9.4ppg, 1.8rpg and 2.6apg. Napier is another player who holds two passports: Puerto Rican and American. He used to play for the Puerto Rican national team back in 2016. Apparently Napier has never played in Puerto Rico.

Wilfredo Pagan
Wilfredo Pagan
   #7. Former international point guard Wilfredo Pagan (184-76, currently plays in Mexico) is a teammate of previously mentioned Carlos Rivera. However that was another game of his team in Mexican LNBP which brought him to that list. Pagan managed to help Fuerza Regia Monterrey in a victory against the leader Capitanes (26-13) 97-78. He scored only 3 points in 12 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group North. Fuerza Regia Monterrey (31-9) is placed first. This year Pagan's overall stats are: 4.2ppg, 1.4rpg and 1.7apg in 55 games. He holds both American and Puerto Rican passports. Pagan used to play for the Puerto Rican national team seventeen years ago. He played also for Brujos de Guayama in Puerto Rican league.

Christopher Ortiz
Christopher Ortiz
   #8. Forward Christopher Ortiz (203-93, agency: Inception Sports, college: Kent St., currently plays in Finland) was not able to secure a victory for Helsinki Seagulls (18-20) in their game against KTP-Basket (22-16) in the Finnish Korisliiga. Ortiz scored 9 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. But Helsinki Seagulls was defeated 88-73 in Kotka by the higher-ranked KTP-Basket (#4). His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is quite important. It's Ortiz's first season with the team. This year Ortiz has very high stats. He averages: 15.6ppg, 6.3rpg and 1.6apg. Ortiz holds both American and Puerto Rican passports. He used to play for the Puerto Rican national team back in 2017. Ortiz played also for Santurce in Puerto Rican league.
