New York Knicks Reaction: LeBron’s Cavs Dominate; Kristaps Porzingis Makes History (Highlights)


The New York Knicks couldn’t stretch their short lived winning streak to three games, but Kristaps is back to his productive self.

The New York Knicks were throttled by the Cleveland Cavaliers, ending a nice little two game winning streak, but there was a celebratory silver-lining.

Tonight, the Latvian rookie sensation that is Kristaps Porzingis made NBA history. He became the first rookie in the history of the Association to record 1000+ points, 500+ rebounds, 75+ three pointers, and 100+ blocks.

Simply put: The man kid can do it all.

In fact, this ‘man’ is just 20-years old, not yet allowed to even buy himself a beer or five in celebration.

He ended tonight’s game with: 19 points on 7-16 shooting, 6 boards, 3 assists and one steal.

The Good:

Aside from Kristaps, his milestone, and his third solid outing in row after seemingly hitting the dreaded ‘rookie wall’, Carmelo Anthony also did his part to put up a fight.

Melo gave a vintage performance – albeit, a losing one too – and poured in 28 points and 9 boards. Hey, the better Melo plays, the more we win, and the worse our draft pick will be…take that, Raptors!

The Bad:

The defense was just brutal. At one point, disgraceful defender Jose Calderon turned around to yell something, so, Matthew Dellovadova proceeded to nail a three pointer (VIDEO BELOW).

It appeared Lebron James and the Cavs were taking their frustrations out on the Knickerbockers over recent James media fiascos and terrible losses.

Bron Bron finished with a triple double; 27 points, 11 boards, 10 assists. Not too shabby.

The Ugly:

Miley Cyrus is big fan of our innocent prodigy Kristaps. She was scene sporting a KP shirsey at the game alongside New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz.
