Porzingis leads Knicks past Lakers in National Basketball Association

NC BL NEW YORK CITY OUT NO SALES LaVar Ball waited until the third quarter to demonstratively announce his arrival at Madison Square Garden
Lucia Summers | 13 December, 2017, 11:06

The Lakers were once again buoyed by the play of their bench. The Knicks had one Unicorn who completely took the game over.

Kuzma hit a 3-pointer with 23.9 seconds left to tie the game at 99, but New York's Michael Beasley had two baskets and an assist on a Doug McDermott layup during a 69-second run in overtime to give the Knicks a six-point lead they would not relinquish.

The Lakers are 10-16, and sit No. 11 overall in the Western Conference.

Look, 7-footers just aren't supposed to be able to move like this.

The only Big Baller at the Garden was Kristaps Porzingis. The Knicks went to Porzingis for the final shot, but with Caldwell-Pope guarding him, Porzingis' off-balance three-pointer didn't fall. Porzingis had a tougher time down the stretch, as he shot just 3-for-10 after the third.

Against the Lakers (10-16), he scored 12 his 13 points in the fourth quarter and overtime. "They didn't get back and we had an advantage".

Kuzma added 19 points off the bench and his heroics kept the Lakers in the game.

Despite the loss, the Lakers made a good account of themselves, as their players stepped-up their games and even had a chance to win.

Brandon Ingram was the the player affected most.

The Latvian had 12 points in the third quarter, including a pair of 3-pointers during Lonzo's outburst. In 26 minutes, Clarkson collected 22 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal, 0 blocks, 1 three and 2 turnovers.

Ball told Shelburne he is just trying to do what is best for his son, Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball.

That set off a thrilling minute of action, with Ball scoring seven straight points for the Lakers, including a 3-pointer.

In front of a national audience, the 20-year-old point guard played one of the most complete, impressive and mature games of his young NBA career. On the ensuing fast break Caldwell-Pope lobbed an alley-oop to Ball, who spiked a dunk with one hand.

"Luke Walton is doing what he's doing, playing Lonzo in and out", he said (via Gabrielle McMillen of Sporting News). "We've seen that before out of him".

Ball's still adamant that he knows what's best for his son, though.

Crabbe was among seven Nets in double figures, finishing with 13 points.

Antonio Conte: 'Chelsea could miss out on top four'
If you remember against Atletico Madrid, Andreas Christensen had two chances to score and also we have to improve as the whole team in every situation.
