Kristaps Porzingis gets shoved by Draymond Green but still makes shot
There was a time when Kristaps Porzingis was the most promising NBA player in the league. It seemed to be only a matter of time before Kristaps led the Knicks back to prominence. Instead, Kristaps Porzingis was traded to the Dallas Mavericks. Kristaps Porzingis’ workout with Dirk Nowitzki went viral, as it looked like Kristaps would become the next Dirk. Instead, Luka Doncic has taken over as the leader of the Mavericks, leading to Kristaps’ eventual exit from Dallas.
Kristaps Porzingis has landed with the Washington Wizards. No longer is Kristaps Porzingis considered a promising star in the league. Now Kristaps Porzingis is a role player. The Wizards have struggled this year and Kristaps was brought in to fill a need. Last night, Kristaps Porzingis began to play like a franchise player. Kristaps’ game wasn’t a moment too soon, as the Washington Wizards hosted the Golden State Warriors last night.
The Washington Wizards hosted the Golden State Warriors, who are slumping. Early this season, the Warriors raced out to a 25-6 record. Since that time, the Warriors have gone 22-22. With all of the veterans back, the Warriors are a .500 team. Last night, the Wizards made the Warriors exactly .500, as Draymond Green’s frustration got the best of him. Draymond Green actually shoved Kristaps Porzingis, but Kristaps still ended up making the shot.
