Watch Kristaps Porzingis’ 34-point night in elimination game in EuroBasket

1 Comment

The MVP of EuroBasket is probably Goran Dragic, who has been nothing short of amazing averaging 21 points and 5.4 assists per game, and hitting 37.5 percent from three in leading Slovenia to the title game.

After him, it might be Kristaps Porzingis. The Knicks big man averaged 27.2 points a game, shooting 37.5 percent from three, and getting to the line almost seven times a game.

Porzingis dropped 34 points and pulled down six boards in Latvia’s quarterfinal game against Dragic’s Slovenia, but it wasn’t enough (that was the same game where KP got into it with Anthony Randolph). Still, his highlights from that game are worth watching — and are a reminder the Knicks need to get him the ball more this season and run the offense through him.
