Because the NBA star and the Lakers Kobe Bryant at the end of this season will finish career, it was the last opportunity of Porzingis to meet face-to-face on the court with great player. Only now the coach of the Knicks Kurt Rambis decided this time to leave the Latvian striker was not on the list for the match. Porzingis albeit scored in the last game against the clippers with 23 points, but not very much played then under the ring. It seems this was the cause of his sending to the reserve. By the way, it was the third game missed by Kristaps during the season.
And the game against the worst team in the Western conference evolved initially for basketball players the Knicks very well. By the middle of the meeting they were "11" and in the final quarter the majority of guests were sometimes even 16 points. But towards the end of the match, the home team managed to catch up with the rival (74:74). Moreover, the last minute the Lakers were constantly in front, and Kobe Bryant had all the chances to end the match. But the legend missed the chance for the Knicks to make a last attack, which was nine seconds.
At first I thought it was the guests wouldn't be too well blocked all the approaches to the ring of protection the Lakers. A different opinion was the defender "new York" Jose Calderon, who, having for a moment the operating room, precisely threw from behind the arc- 90:87 in favor of the Knicks. The final siren was still 0.2 seconds.
This victory became for the Knicks 28th in the 68 games of the season, the team still occupies the 13th place in the Eastern conference.
