Porzingis forgets which locker room to go to at Madison Square Garden

Porzingis hadn't played a game for the Knicks since February 6, 2018. According to NBA reports, some fans also yelled "traitor" during the national anthem and asked Porzingis to return to Latvia.

Finishing with 20 points on 5-for-7 from three, Morris nailed the decisive shot to put the Knicks ahead, 104-101 with 13.4 seconds left to send the Garden crowd into a frenzy. While he was rehabbing the injury, NY dealt him to Dallas in a blockbuster trade last season after Knicks management said he told them in a meeting that day he didn't want to stay with the franchise. “I would not say it affected me.

On Thursday night, Smith Jr. shined for the Knicks as the team topped the Mavs 106-103 for their second win against Kristaps Porzingis this season.

Marcus Morris buried a clutch go-ahead three-point shot with 13.4 seconds left, and the Knicks were able to make free-throws down the stretch to shut the door on the Mavericks and relieve the pressure on the struggling franchise for at least this night. It was pretty loud.

There was no ceremonious tribute video or standing ovation for the former face of the New York Knicks franchise on Thursday night. "So, even though shots weren't falling tonight for us and Coby White went insane in the fourth quarter, I think that we played hard for coach and that's all we ask for". "It's what they've heard".

"It's what they know. It was what it was", Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said.

As of this morning, there were almost 70 active bushfires in New South Wales, and a state of fire emergency has been called. Four Defence Force firefighters are heading across the Tasman tomorrow, to help battle the New South Wales bushfires.


"We can't control the wins and the losses, but we can control our effort level and just going out there and playing with the swag and intensity", Bobby Portis said.

Porzingis hasn't publicly discussed the reasons he requested the trade. Several lopsided losses and an impromptu press conference from team president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry in which the execs bemoaned a lack of consistency from the players led to the speculation.

"I've been coming here a long time".

Dennis Smith Jr., the former Mav who came to NY in the Porzingis trade, had 13 points, eight assists and six rebounds.

"So I understand. But tonight they really, not only were they booing (Porzingis), but they showed great appreciation for our effort. that's The great part about the Garden", he said.
