Knicks F Kristaps Porzingis, who scored 37 points in the Knicks' win over the Lakers on Tuesday, became the first player in NBA history to combine at least 35 points with 10 rebounds, five blocks, and five three-pointers in a game, according to Tommy Beer of Basketball Insiders.
In addition, Porzingis became the first Knick since Patrick Ewing to score 35 points, grab 10 rebounds, and have five blocks in a game, reports Ian Begley of ESPN.
When Porzingis was asked about the statistical feat, he said "that doesn't help us make the playoffs," Begley reported. PG Frank Ntilikina also played a key role in the game, scoring a career-high 13 points to go along with five rebounds and five assists
Porzingis, who has scored at least 30 points in back-to-back games, is averaging 25.5 points and 6.6 rebounds per game so far this season.
