Default Kristaps Porzingis starts with 8 straight points

One fade away and then two long 3 pointers. He looks good so far.

It definitely has some more muscle mass on him. Hopefully he built up his core and leg strength. Especially around the ankles and knees. That matters most for big-men of his size.

When you think back, the Knicks couldn't' even do right by the one good thing Phil Jackson did. Which was pick a no-named big-man from some European country. Everyone hated that pick at the time, and it turned out fantastic as far as talent is concerned. All-star talent, but they couldn't even make him happy.

His career in a microcosm. Starts out strong, then the anemia starts taking effect in late December. By February he’s constantly in Joel Embiid’s patented “4th quarter mode”.

Mavs desperately need to get rid of THJ and Courtney Lee, those two are team cancers and were a big part of why Kristaps never got going in Knicks.

Trade them to tanking OKC for Steven Adams. Mavs really need a strong center.

So we're gonna make fun of the Knicks because KP has a good preseason game? OK, I guess if you wanna troll, you could have trolled them after the first play of the game.

We make fun of Knicks because they mistreated KP since his rookie season.

How is cap space playing for you guys? That's who you traded KP for right?

KD, Kyrie and Zion?

False. His brother was a diva and controlled the situation. If you want to believe KP had nothing to do with getting traded than nothing will convince you.

Traded him for a fresh start. Starting all over from... being a bad team. They do have Mavs picks, so Dallas still has to make the playoffs to make sure they don't gift away a high pick. Didn't want KD once he got hurt, I already know how that would have worked out if they signed him. Knicks have a history of getting guys past their prime. Kyrie is a headcase and injury prone. He's already hurt and how long did it take in a preseason game?

Can't say anything about Zion, because I really did want him. But Lebron already had an agreement with the NBA to make sure they got the 1st pick. Give us AD and we will make sure you get the 1st pick

AFter those 8 straight points he missed a bunch of shots so it was a wash.

Has something changed? Courtney Lee was the quintessential “stay in yo lane” player to the point you had to beg him to shoot more open 3s.

Was part of that whole "only pass to KP as a last resort" group led by Melo, THJ, Sessions etc.
