Hosting the Charlotte Hornets tonight at MSG, the New York Knicks are getting a carer best performance from young Kristaps Porzingis.

Although New York Knicks phenom Latvian-sensation Kristaps Porzingis has been receiving plenty of publicity due to his thunderous and shocking put-back stuffs, he hasn’t truly broken out yet.

We haven’t yet seen that one signature game from the 20-year old rookie.

That was, until, tonight came and went.

While his Knickerbockers hosted the Charlotte Hornets at Madison Square Garden, Porzingis showed off all of his abilities. He showed he can shoot from downtown, play tough underneath, and hit ’em in the post with a little Hakeem Olajuwon “dreamshake.”

It seems as though he’s already arrived onto the NBA scene – way ahead of schedule.

As it stands right now, KP has a career high 27-points as the two teams play on in the fourth quarter. The Knicks hold a four-point lead late.
