Kristaps Porzingis' 16-point first quarter is so fun to watch
It doesn't matter if you're a Knicks fan or not: One of the most exciting things in basketball this season is when Kristaps Porzingis goes off. Those 28-point games or monster putbacks are jaw-dropping to see from a 7-foot-3 20-year-old who is still so far from his potential.
Tuesday night provided us with another superb Porzingis moment. The rookie dropped 16 points in the first quarter of the Knicks' home win over the Celtics, hitting his first five field-goal attempts of the game, which included some cocky, loooooong pull-up threes.
Porzingis fought through foul trouble throughout the game and eventually fouled out for the first time in his career, but he finished with 26 points and six rebounds in the win that brought the Knicks back to an even 20-20 on the season.
