Morning Rewind, 11/18: Kristaps Porzingis is the next big thing

Hornets Unable to Overcome Rookie Porzingis, Knicks


It wasn't long ago that New York Knicks fans were disgusted with the fact that Kristaps Porzingis was on the team. After suffering through a 17-65 season in 2014-15 -- the worst in franchise history -- fans had been endlessly dreaming of the NCAA's biggest names: Jahlil Okafor, D'Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns.

But after all three prospects were taken before the Knicks had the chance to select at No. 4, Phil Jackson's focus then shifted to the then-19-year-old Latvian, who stood at 7'3" but was a relative unknown to NBA fans.


Boos rained down upon him on draft night -- not unlike most Knicks draft picks. But the promising forward has approached the situation correctly from the start.



After Tuesday night, those boos might never return.

The rookie continued his impressive rookie season with his biggest game of all at home against the Charlotte Hornets, putting up 29 points on 10-of-17 shooting to go along with 17 rebounds.

Instead of boos, the Garden faithful has quickly changed their tune -- chants of "Por-zing-is" and "MVP" filled MSG, and the mood was infectious. Even Carmelo Anthony -- who finished with 18 points and 11 boards -- was making the necessary extra passes.



In a game where they trailed big late in the first half, the Knicks pulled out an impressive 102-94 victory. Their sixth win last year didn't come until Jan. 19. Now, at 6-6, New York sits comfortably at .500 after 12 games of a challenging schedule.
