New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez had another big game Monday in Spain’s blowout win against Romania.

Spain continued to dismantle the competition in EuroBasket 2017 on Monday with a 91-50 blowout win over Romania. They’re the best team in the tournament, and New York Knicks center Willy Hernangomez is a big reason why.

Hernangomez is the team’s leading rebounder; he grabbed 13 boards in Monday’s win to add to his total. His brother Juancho led the team in scoring with 18 points on 7-of-15 shooting and had 12 rebounds of his own. Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol added 15 points and eight rebounds.

The Spanish team will try and keep up their dominant play on Tuesday against Croatia. They’re led by ex-Net Bojan Bogdanovic and 76ers forward Dario Saric.

Hernangomez wasn’t the only Knick who showed up with a big performance on Monday. Kristaps Porzingis lit up Great Britain with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting in a 97-92 victory.

Mindaugas Kuzminskas (Lithuania) will try and keep up his success against the Ukraine on Tuesday. Kuz is currently averaging 16 points per game on 47.5 percent shooting and 42.1 percent shooting from three-point range.
