PJ Washington and Grant Williams had plenty of battles during their time at Kentucky and Tennessee.
The rivalry between the two continued in the NBA and the first meeting occurred Thursday night in Charlotte when the Hornets and Boston Celtics matched up.
While Williams and the Celtics picked up the win, Washington made sure to get in an impressive rejection vs. Williams at the rim. For the game, Washington blocked a career high five shots.
The former Wildcat has transitioned well to the NBA game and it seems like we’re talking about him every night he plays. You can watch all five of Washington’s rejections below.
