Are you waking up late this Saturday morning, my fellow Knicks fan? Well, in that case...HOLY CRAP DO I HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW YOU.
Kristaps Porzingis had a monster game in Latvia’s 92-64 group stage win over Belgium today. He scored 27 points without making a three pointer, 6 rebounds, 2 steals and a block. Also, no fouls!!!!

Full roundup, forthcoming.
