Knicks 105, Pistons 102: Scenes from the night Kristaps Porzingis came to town

Kristaps Porzingis, you know what I mean?

The Knicks’ stud sophomore finally cracked the 30-point barrier, dropping 35 in a 105-102 win over the Detroit Pistons. He crushed Detroit in the first half, scoring a mind-blowing 25 before the break. He also has 7 rebounds, 3 assists and a block. Kristaps!

Kristaps scored 10 straight points in a particularly sassy second-quarter stint. Nice to see him going buck wild with the bench bros.

Oh, and he was feeling sassy on the other end, with a “fuck outta here” at the ref:

He also high-fived some fans and knocked some beers to the ground:

He literally did everything. LITERALLY EVERYTHING.

Justin Holiday got some big second-half minutes once again, and delivered.

Holiday had perhaps the biggest play of the night, a contested offensive rebounded off a garbage Knicks shot with seconds remaining. I like Justin Holiday. He’s no Kristaps Porzingis, but he’s pretty cool.

Kristaps! Por-zing-is!
