[Video] A Glimpse of the Future: Porzingis Drops 30 in Rising Stars Challenge


Kristaps Porzingis made a huge impact last night to kick off All-Star weekend by scoring 30 points in the Rising Stars Challenge. His ouput helped keep the World team close, but they still fell to the USA squad 157-154. Had the World team won, Porzingis was a lock for MVP. In the end, it went to Zach Lavine on Team USA, who also scored 30 points.

Porzingis’ stat line for the night was 30 points (12/16, 5/8 from downtown), 4 assists and 1 block. Expect to see Porzingis balling out as an All-Star for years to come.
