The latest edition of the New York Knicks news mix provides you with an update on the trio participating in EuroBasket 2017.
The New York Knicks have three players active during EuroBasket 2017. Kristaps Porzingis (Latvia), Willy Hernangomez (Spain), and Mindaugas Kuzminskas (Lithuania) were all active on Saturday. They all played good basketball.
Porzingis dropped 27 points to go along with one of his signature put back dunks in Latvia’s 92-64 beatdown of Belgium. The unicorn put on a show fit for the regular season as he put on his team on his back.

Hernangomez scored nine points and grabbed ten rebounds in just 16 minutes of action during another blowout win for Spain over the Czech Republic. Not quite as impressive as his teammate, but Willy is playing on the best team.
Kuzminskas scored 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting to go along with five rebounds and four assists in a win for Lithuania over Israel.
