Kristaps Porzingis lived up to his "Unicorn" moniker as he did something in Tuesday night's overtime win over the Laker no NBA player has ever done.
Porzingis became the first NBA player to have at least 35 points, 10 rebounds, five blocks, and five 3-pointers made in a single game. And without that production, the Knicks may not have gotten past Lonzo Ball and the Lakers in a 113-109 thriller. It is performances like these that continue to thrill everyone watching the 22-year-old, including his head coach.
"This is probably, hopefully the tip of the iceberg for him," head coach Jeff Hornacek told ESPN's Ian Begley. "This is only his third year in the league, [and] at 22 years old, to put up these numbers is something else...And again, he's going to get better and better every year too."
