Nov. 18 8:46 AM PT9:46 AM MT10:46 AM CT11:46 AM ET16:46 GMT0:46 9:46 AM MST11:46 AM EST20:46 UAE17:4611:46 ET10:46 AM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 13 points Friday on 3-of-13 shooting as the New York Knicks fell to the Toronto Raptors 107-84. Porzingis grabbed four rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -17 in his 34:49 on the floor. He added four blocks. Porzingis went 2 of 3 from behind the arc.
Analysis: This was just the third time this season Porzingis failed to score 20 points, and the fourth time he failed to hit at least 40 percent from the field. He wasn't the only one off for the Knicks, who shot a season-worst 33 percent. ''It was us missing a lot of good shots,'' Porzingis said.
Nov. 15 7:50 PM PT8:50 PM MT9:50 PM CT10:50 PM ET3:50 GMT11:50 8:50 PM MST10:50 PM EST7:50 UAE (+1)04:5022:50 ET9:50 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 22 points Wednesday on 8-of-19 shooting as the New York Knicks topped the Utah Jazz 106-101. Porzingis grabbed eight rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 36:04 of playing time. He added two blocks. Porzingis went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Maybe Porzingis' run of 30-point games has cooled but he's still doing plenty of other things. He's been limited to 42 points in his last two games but has 15 rebounds, three 3-pointers and three blocks in those contests. He's still on pace to increase his scoring average by more than 10 points from last season.
Nov. 13 8:26 PM PT9:26 PM MT10:26 PM CT11:26 PM ET4:26 GMT12:26 9:26 PM MST11:26 PM EST8:26 UAE05:2623:26 ET10:26 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 20 points Monday on 7-of-21 shooting as the New York Knicks lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers 104-101. Porzingis pulled down seven rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +5 in his 34:13 of playing time. He added one block and two steals. Porzingis went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Porzingis missed 14 of his 21 shots in this one and scored 20 or less for the third time in 12 games. He was in foul trouble so this performance was more of an outlier than any kind of sign of what's to come. Porzingis has a tough matchup Wednesday against a stingy Utah team.
Nov. 11 7:04 PM PT8:04 PM MT9:04 PM CT10:04 PM ET3:04 GMT11:04 8:04 PM MST10:04 PM EST7:04 UAE (+1)04:0422:04 ET9:04 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 34 points Saturday, going 11 of 21 from the field, as the New York Knicks defeated the Sacramento Kings 118-91. Porzingis grabbed five rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +31 in his 26:37 of playing time. He added two blocks. Porzingis went 4 of 6 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Porzingis returned after a one-game absence and scored at least 30 for the eighth time in 11 games. Over his last four games, the big Latvian is averaging 34.8 points on 59.8 percent shooting - 11 of 20 from deep - with 6.3 rebounds and 14 total blocks.
Nov. 8 9:56 AM PT10:56 AM MT11:56 AM CT12:56 PM ET17:56 GMT1:56 10:56 AM MST12:56 PM EST21:56 UAE18:5612:56 ET11:56 AM CTNaN:� - Porzingis will play Saturday after he had been ruled out Wednesday because of ankle and elbow injuries.
Analysis: Obviously big news as Porzingis has been one of the top fantasy players so far.
Nov. 7 8:05 PM PT9:05 PM MT10:05 PM CT11:05 PM ET4:05 GMT12:05 9:05 PM MST11:05 PM EST8:05 UAE05:0523:05 ET10:05 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 28 points Tuesday on 10-of-15 shooting as the New York Knicks topped the Charlotte Hornets 118-113. Porzingis grabbed five rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 28:48 of playing time. He added three blocks. Porzingis went 4 of 8 from 3-point range.
Analysis: The Eastern Conference player of the week was held below 30 for only the third time in 10 games this season, but he delivered when it mattered, scoring seven points in the final 2:32. That gave him 300 points through 10 games, two more than Bernard King had to open 1984-85.
Nov. 6 9:46 PM PT10:46 PM MT11:46 PM CT12:46 AM ET5:46 GMT13:46 10:46 PM MST12:46 AM EST9:46 UAE06:460:46 ET11:46 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 40 points Sunday, going 15 of 24 from the field, as the New York Knicks topped the Indiana Pacers 108-101. Porzingis pulled down eight rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +20 in his 38:16 of playing time. He added six blocks. Porzingis went 2 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Another monster performance from Porzingis, whose 30.2 points-per-game average trails only Giannis Antetokounmpo for tops in the league. The Unicorn has been piling up the blocks as well, totaling 18 over his last six games. It's safe to say his recent ankle issues aren't much of a concern.
Nov. 5 2:09 PM PT3:09 PM MT4:09 PM CT5:09 PM ET22:09 GMT6:09 3:09 PM MST5:09 PM EST2:09 UAE (+1)23:0917:09 ET4:09 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis will play Sunday against the Pacers after missing practice Saturday due to a sore left ankle.
Analysis: Porzingis leads the league in usage rating and has scored at least 30 points in six of eight games, so that's not great for Indiana.
Nov. 4 9:24 PM PT10:24 PM MT11:24 PM CT12:24 AM ET4:24 GMT12:24 9:24 PM MST11:24 PM EST8:24 UAE05:240:24 ET10:24 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 37 points Friday, going 13 of 22 from the field, as the New York Knicks defeated the Phoenix Suns 120-107. Porzingis pulled down seven rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +13 in his 31:12 on the floor. He added three blocks and one steal. Porzingis went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
Analysis: After missing Thursday's practice due to stomach illness, Porzingis fell just shy of the career-high 38 he scored Monday against Denver. He had topped 30 points in six of eight games and has shot 51.3 percent with 8.0 rebounds in his last five. Porzingis is averaging 29.0 points after he scored 18.1 last season.
Nov. 2 8:26 AM PT9:26 AM MT10:26 AM CT11:26 AM ET15:26 GMT23:26 8:26 AM MST10:26 AM EST19:26 UAE16:2611:26 ET9:26 AM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 19 points Wednesday, going 7 of 18 from the field, as the New York Knicks fell to the Houston Rockets 119-97. Porzingis pulled down five rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -7 in his 27:36 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: It was only the second time in seven games that Porzingis did not reach 30 points. Still, he's been a fantasy star with a 27.9-point average with 7.9 rebounds per game.
Nov. 2 9:00 AM PT10:00 AM MT11:00 AM CT12:00 PM ET16:00 GMT0:00 9:00 AM MST11:00 AM EST20:00 UAE17:0012:00 ET10:00 AM CTNaN:� - Porzingis will play in Friday's game against the Suns after being listed as questionable due to an illness.
Analysis: Porzingis didn't practice Thursday but apparently feels well enough to take the floor. His 19 points Wednesday marked just the second time in seven games that he's been held under 30.
Oct. 30 7:32 AM PT8:32 AM MT9:32 AM CT10:32 AM ET14:32 GMT22:32 7:32 AM MST9:32 AM EST18:32 UAE15:3210:32 ET8:32 AM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 32 points Sunday on 13-of-27 shooting as the New York Knicks topped the Cleveland Cavaliers 114-95. Porzingis grabbed 12 rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +21 in his 35:48 of playing time. He added two blocks and one steal. Porzingis went 2 of 5 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Porzingis has play five games and scored 30 points in four of them. At least there's going to be one All-Star in New York this season.
Oct. 30 8:13 PM PT9:13 PM MT10:13 PM CT11:13 PM ET3:13 GMT11:13 8:13 PM MST10:13 PM EST7:13 UAE (+1)04:1323:13 ET9:13 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 38 points Monday on 14-of-26 shooting as the New York Knicks defeated the Denver Nuggets 116-110. Porzingis pulled down seven rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of 0 in his 34:15 on the floor. He added three blocks. Porzingis went 4 of 7 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Porzingis produced his eighth career game with at least 30 points and surpassed his previous career best of 35 set Nov. 16 against the Detroit Pistons. It was his fifth 30-point game of the season, raising his scoring average to 29.3 points. Porzingis joined Toronto's DeMar DeRozan as the second player in the last 25 years to get at least 30 points in five of the first six games of a season. He also is the first Knick to achieve five 30-point games in the first six.
Oct. 27 8:17 PM PT9:17 PM MT10:17 PM CT11:17 PM ET3:17 GMT11:17 8:17 PM MST10:17 PM EST7:17 UAE (+1)05:1723:17 ET10:17 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 30 points Friday, as the New York Knicks defeated the Brooklyn Nets 107-86. Porzingis pulled down nine rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +12 in his 29:23 of playing time. He added three blocks and one steal. Porzingis went 1 of 6 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Porzingis turned in his third 30-point game of the season and sixth of his three-year career by exploiting mismatches most of the night and shooting 13 of 24. The 7-foot-3 forward did a bulk of his damage against 6-foot-7 Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
Oct. 24 7:39 PM PT8:39 PM MT9:39 PM CT10:39 PM ET2:39 GMT10:39 7:39 PM MST9:39 PM EST6:39 UAE (+1)04:3922:39 ET9:39 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 12 points Tuesday, going 3 of 14 from the field, as the New York Knicks lost to the Boston Celtics 110-89. Porzingis pulled down five rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -14 in his 31:41 on the floor.
Analysis: Porzingis, who was attempting to become the first Knick to scored 30 points in each of the first three games, was 1-for-12 from the floor before hitting two fourth-quarter baskets. Horford did much of the heavy physical work against Porzingis, and it seemed everyone on the floor for Boston took a shot at him at one time or another. After scoring 64 points in the first two games, Porzingis left with 4:44 remaining.
Oct. 22 8:08 AM PT9:08 AM MT10:08 AM CT11:08 AM ET15:08 GMT23:08 8:08 AM MST10:08 AM EST19:08 UAE17:0811:08 ET10:08 AM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 33 points Saturday, going 11 of 20 from the field, as the New York Knicks lost to the Detroit Pistons 111-107. Porzingis grabbed five rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -5 in his 34:47 on the floor. He added one block and one steal. Porzingis went 3 of 7 from behind the arc.
Analysis: The Zinger is off to a fantastic start, totaling 64 points in two games. He'll be the lone bright spot on Broadway this season.
Oct. 19 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET3:22 GMT11:22 8:22 PM MST10:22 PM EST7:22 UAE (+1)05:2223:22 ET10:22 PM CTNaN:� - Kristaps Porzingis scored 31 points Thursday, going 11 of 25 from the field, as the New York Knicks lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 105-84. Porzingis pulled down 12 rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -17 in his 38:17 of playing time. He added one block. Porzingis went 2 of 6 from 3-point range.
Analysis: With Carmelo Anthony now in Oklahoma City, Porzingis appears to be free to reign in New York. Without many scoring options, expect a big season from Porzingis.
