Kristaps Porzingis Fights in Latvia, Leaves with Bloody Face

Kristaps Porzingis Fights in Latvia, Leaves with Bloody Face

Dallas Mavericks big man Kristaps Porzingis was back home in Latvia over the weekend when an apparent altercation broke out at a Liepaja nightclub, leaving Porzingis hurt.

A video that surfaced on social media Sunday showed a seemingly irate Porzingis with blood on his face trying to be calmed down by police.

Kristaps Porzingis off-season continues to get more freakish as on Sunday afternoon in the States a video was leaked of the former Knicks star getting beat up. Per the report, the Mavericks star was confronted by a group of Russians at one of these clubs over him "switching" National Basketball Association teams. Their understanding of the situation is that Porzingis was jumped by unknown aggressors, then bludgeoned him with blunt objects right outside a local club.

UAE says four ships targeted by 'sabotage' off its east coast
The US Navy's Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet told Reuters it was aware of the UAE report but referred queries to the UAE authorities. The UAE on Sunday said the sabotage targeted four boats , without elaborating or naming suspects, reported Daily Express .


According to TMZ Sports, Porzingis was confronted by Russians who were upset about the Knicks' trade with Dallas. According to Eurohoops sources, Porzingis was attacked by six or seven unidentified persons who hit him with a chair. He missed all of the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season to heal from his injury.

Maybe the New York Knicks knew something we didn't know when they traded Kristaps Porzingis last season.

When Porzingis was traded, the NYPD was looking into a rape accusation made by a neighbor in his NY apartment. Porzingis has denied the allegation.
