Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis scored 31 points, brought down 12 rebounds and recorded a block of former teammate Carmelo Anthony in Thursday's season-opening 105-84 loss at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The 22-year-old forward recorded his fourth 30-point game in his third professional season, shooting 11-of-25 from the floor and 2-of-6 from 3-point range.
"I always have the highest expectations for myself," Porzingis said, according to the New York Post's Fred Kerber. "I'm my own critic always in situations where I'm not playing well. There's nothing I will hear that will surprise me from the fans or whatever."
