A small but vociferous group of Knicks fans arrived at the Garden armed with boos and derisive chants to direct at Kristaps Porzingis, but what they wanted more than anything Friday night was a victory over the former Knicks All-Star and his current team.
Even with Porzingis mostly mired in a rocky shooting night, however, the Knicks followed Wednesday’s crushing loss at Minnesota by flushing a double-digit lead for the second consecutive game, in a 99-86 loss to the Mavericks. It was their third straight defeat and dropped them below .500 again at 24-25.
Porzingis heard throaty boos and “KP sucks” chants throughout the game, and the 7-foot-3 forward finished with 14 points on 6-for-17 shooting from the floor. (NYPost)
