New York Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis gets into scuffle with Phoenix Suns (Video)

New York Knicks young Kristaps Porzingis gets into a shoving match with Marquese Chriss and the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.

If we were back in the 1990s, this would be considered morning tea with your grandmother. 

Take a look at the video above. With the New York Knicks playing the Phoenix Suns out west, young Kristaps Porzingis was shoved to the ground. The Latvian quickly rose to his feet and shoved Marquese Chriss.

The two teams were quickly separated thereafter, but hard feelings on both sides continued.


For most of the game, Phoenix seemingly had a grasp of the game. They led by 12 after three quarters of play.

However, New York has outscored Phoenix 24-10 in the fourth quarter en route to taking a 97-95 point lead with a little over three minutes to go in the game.

They did it with the bench. Porzingis, Justin Holiday, Ron Baker, and other bench players have propelled them to the lead.
