Don’t Look Now But The Knicks Are Legit
The New York Knicks have won four straight games, after its win over Houston on Saturday, and you can give the most credit to the team's best player. Kristaps Porzingis, the twenty-year-old Kristaps Porzingis had 24 points, 14 rebounds and seven blocks in the win over Houston. He’s just the fifth rookie in the past 20 seasons to post at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocks in the same game.
I get it, the kid has only played in 14 games, it doesn't matter. I'm going to continue to yell his name from the mountain tops until he gives me a reason not to.
Porzingis has gave the Knicks an attitude that they've missed for a long time. He may not be Charles Oakley mean, but the 7-footer has athletic ability that had transformed the Knicks defensively.
Along with the additions of Robin Lopez, and Aaron Afflalo the Knicks have an inside out threat that has helped a healthy Carmelo Anthony.
Anthony has shown so far this season that when he has help, teammates he can trust, and is healthy he's a whole different ball player. Anthony shot only 10 times against Houston, due to foul trouble, but was key to the Knicks defensive efforts down the stretch.
The Knicks look to push its win streak to five games in Miami against the Heat on Monday night.
