Kristaps Porzingis was asked about being the first player in NBA history to have at least 35 points, 10 rebounds, 5 blocks and 5 made 3-pointers in a game. He said it's an "honor" but "that doesn't help us make the playoffs."

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Caris LeVert each scored 16 points, and the Brooklyn Nets overcame blowing a double-digit second-half lead and took advantage of a costly mistake by the Washington Wizards in the final seconds to pull out a 103-98 victory...

Kristaps Porzingis is the first Knick with 35 points, 10 rebounds and 5 blocks in a game since Patrick Ewing in 1996. Patrick never hit 5 threes in one of those games though. Per Tommy Beer of Basketball Insiders, Porzingis is the first player in NBA history to have that combination with 5 made threes.

Kristaps Porzingis (35 points, 11 rebounds, 5 blocks) helps lift the Knicks to a win in overtime against the Lakers. Michael Beasley had 12 points (6-for-8), 3 rebounds, an assist and a steal in the 4th quarter & OT to boost NYK. Frank Ntilikina added a career-high 13 points to go along with 5 assists and 5 rebounds against draft mate Lonzo Ball.

Nice job by Luke Walton's Lakers fouling with 4.5 seconds to play and forcing the Knicks to re-set. They had the ball in Kristaps Porzingis' hands in a comfortable spot before the foul.

Final possession here for the Knicks. I have to think Jeff Hornacek is trying to get Kristaps Porzingis to use the double team that will come his way to the Knicks' advantage.

Tim Hardaway Jr. is wearing a pretty large boot to protect the stress ailment in his lower left leg. It doesn't seem like he'd be ready to come back any time soon but it's worth noting that he was walking without a limp earlier when he didn't have the boot on. He'll be re-evaluated next Tuesday.
