Kristaps Porzingis scored a career high in points during Wednesday’s 105-102 victory over the Detroit Pistons. He also set a career high in awesome facial expressions. We already chronicled the scoring highlights, but we must never forget the plethora of magnificent faces the Unicorn gave us. Let’s break ‘em down ...
The “My own teammates want to take groupie photos with me because I’m such a bright, shining star, but I feel a little uncomfortable” face.
Can you really blame Mindaugas Kuzminskas, though? He’ll need proof when he’s telling his grandchildren that he played with Kristaps.
The “I’m already at my season average for points and it’s only the second quarter” face.
He kinda looks like Popeye in this one.
The “Game is over, but I still have to carry these jokers to .500” face.
Kristaps wasn’t all smiles and sunshine after the win. He knows he still has to go out and kick more ass the next evening.
The “LOLZ I just compensated for missing my only free throw of the game by nailing a three-pointer” face.
This came after he scored point No. 35. He’s clearly enjoying himself.
The “I thought Andre Drummond was supposed to be good; this is all so tedious” face
It’s that feeling when you get all hyped up to meet one of the best centers in the NBA, then you kick his ass so easily it leaves you wondering what the hell is going on in this world.
The “Wow, maybe I am just this damn good” face.
This happened shortly after Kristaps rebounded one of his rare misses and dunked it home over the hapless Detroit defense. You could see then that he understood: I am Kristaps, and you are all beneath me. We sure are.
The “Aron Baynes tried to stop me from dunking; I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti” face.
The “Fuck outta here” face.
Classic New Yorker face. Kristaps should run for mayor.
