Combo Forward Ben Bentil has written his name in the history books by becoming the first Ghana-born player to play in the NBA after coming off the bench in Dallas Mavericks 95-100 loss to Atlanta Hawks in a regular season game.

Bentil played four minutes after checking in for Dorian Finney-Smith in the second quarter with four minutes and 28 seconds left to play. His historic night ended with the former Providence College going scoreless in the game.

He attempted no shots and failed to register any numbers in several departments including rebounds and steals. Hawks All-Star Power Forward Paul Millsap drew a shooting foul on the versatile Ghanaian Forward before going on to miss one of two attempts on the ensuing free throws.

This was Bentil's first taste of game time after signing a 10 day contract with Dallas from Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the NBA's Development League. He was on the bench the entire time the Mavericks beat Miami Heat earlier in the week.

Fellow rookie and 10 day contract signee Quinn Cook played against Dallas and Atlanta registering eight combined points.
