Kristaps Porzingis vs. Dirk Nowitzki ended up being just about what everyone wanted to see.

The two big men who are constantly compared to one another put on a show on both sides, boasting a little of what makes each of them great. Dirk killed the Knicks and switches, with his post game and in the pick-and-pop. Kristaps put together a variety of moves, including some fancy finishes around the rim and a couple of late threes to keep the game close.

There's no need to tell you to enjoy, because you obviously will:

Nowitzki continued his fantastic season Monday, finishing the win over the Knicks with 25 points and six rebounds. He made nine of his 18 field-goal attempts. Porzingis, meanwhile, almost got to a career high, dropping in 28 points during a highly efficient 13-of-18 performance.
