Kristaps Porzingis got the nickname “Putback King” earlier in the season when he was catching nasty putbacks on a nightly basis. On Saturday night, the Putback King was put on a poster when Damian Lillard caught a putback over him.
Besides getting dunked on, Porzingis failed to score in 19 minutes of action. Thankfully for New York, they still got the W behind 37 from Melo.
Lillard had a team-high 29 points in the loss.
