The Knicks young duo of Kristaps Porzingis and Frank Ntilikina hooked up for a powerful alley-oop in Saturday’s game vs. the Kings.
Frank Ntilikina to Kristaps Porzingis for the dunk. Knicks fans are hoping they hear that many times for the next decade. On Saturday, it was the latest example of the young duo’s rapport when they hooked up for one of KP’s signature alley-oop dunks.
Porzingis set a screen on De’Aaron Fox — Ntlikina’s man — out at the three-point line and then made his move towards the rim. Somehow Skal Labissiere — Porzingis’ man — lost him in the shuffle, and the unicorn was able to throw down a phenomenal one-handed slam.
The Knicks have a big lead on the Kings at halftime, 64-49, behind 24 points from Porzingis. Ntlikina is yet to make a field goal (2 points, 2 assists in 10 minutes) but his impact has been felt as always.
Like most teams, Sacramento has no answer for the unicorn. But in this case, the Kings don’t have the offensive firepower to get back into this game. If the Knicks take care of the ball they should hold onto this lead.
