While rookie of the year candidates Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor were battling in Minny, Kristaps was showing why he’s the top rookie by having another big night: 20 points (he did miss 11 of 18 shots), 14 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 1 assist and 3 of 5 from downtown.
“I got numbers but in important moments I missed a lot of shots – hook shots and jumpers that I usually make and they were pretty close to the basket,” Porzingis said. “So that wasn’t good.”
