Kristaps Porzingis swats away Clint Capela with volleyball block
The 7-foot-3 second-year forward timed his jump impeccably, putting up both arms in volleyball-like fashion and leaving Capela helpless at the rim.
Porzingis was by far the best player in an otherwise disappointing Knicks starting lineup — he totaled 22 points, four rebounds, a steal, and two blocks in 27 minutes of action.
The Latvian international has seemed to make plenty of improvements as head coach Jeff Hornacek raved about his improved post game and long-range shot. He went 5-for-6 from deep and an impressive 8-for-11 from the floor.
