Kristaps Porzingis was named to his first NBA All-Star Game in just his third year in the NBA. He is the second-youngest Knick to be an All-Star and the first Latvian ever to make the All-Star team. Porzingis leads the NBA in blocks, averaging 2.34 rejections per game to go with 23.1 points per game.
The 22-year-old missed Tuesday’s loss at Golden State with a sore knee, but practiced on a limited basis Wednesday and will be re-evaluated closer to game time.
Alan Hahn and Wally Szczerbiak break down Kristaps Porzingis' ridiculous game against the Nuggets.
A monster 38-point performance from Porzingis powered the Knicks to a 116-110 win over the Nuggets at The Garden on Oct. 30.
The newly appointed All-Star also had 7 rebounds and 3 blocks.
Michael Beasley was put into the starting lineup in place of Porzingis, putting in a terrific performance against one of the NBA’s top defenders in Draymond Green.
Beasley scored a team-high 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting from the field.
Courtney Lee‘s streak of 52 straight free throws without a miss came to an end in Tuesday’s loss to Golden State.
Lee surpassed Chris Duhon to set the single-season franchise record.
In 18 minutes, the 23-year-old scored 8 points and dished out 5 assists.
