Nov.01 - SportLand: Kristaps Porzingis is neither surprised nor satisfied by his sensational start to the NBA season. He entered play Wednesday third in the league in scoring with 29.3 points per game after the best beginning stretch ever for a New York Knicks player. He already was the first player in franchise history to score 30 in four of his first five games, then went for a career-best 38 in a victory over Denver on Monday.
According to Charlotteobserver.com, the Knicks made him the face of the franchise when they traded Carmelo Anthony, and he looks up for the challenge. "I'm never surprised by my own game," Porzingis said. "I know what I can do on the basketball court. I always expect the most out of myself."
He steadied the Knicks after a 0-3 start by leading them to three straight victories heading into their game Wednesday against Houston. The extra attention that defenses can pay him now that Anthony is gone hasn't helped them stop the 7-foot-3 forward.
Now Porzingis is scoring in a way even beyond what Anthony did. In response, Ms Ferguson said she was "preparing for a course of action, the nature of which I will be disclosing in the near future".
