Default This is why Rose and Melo don't pass to Kristaps Porzinger in crunch time

Dude is anti-clutch


Many Knicks fans view this guy Porzinger as some kind of savior for their franchise.

I don't see it.

He got brought in the final 30 seconds and you want him to hit a shot when he wasn't involved in the offense? He's hit plenty of big shots.

Besides, the tank lives on

And OP should stick to trolling the off court forum.

The least he can do is not airball the wideopen 3.


Melo should be isoing in clutch time.

It's the only reliable offense the Knicks have.

Nah dude has actually been very clutch. He has had many bad games that were forgotten by fans because of how much better he played to end them and in the clutch.

It had gotten to the point where I felt he was due for something like this because it was almost unsustainable imo.

The guy has the tools to take on an Anthony Davis like impact.

Legit 7'2 and very athletic.

Will still be able to fill his body out.

Going to be a scary player in 2 years.

3 airballs in Utah.

One airball for each title He would deliver to the city of Los Angeles within the next 5 years.


Kobe missed for our sins.

The play wasn't even drawn up for that. He had been cold on the bench for 7 minutes. It was supposed to be a pnr for Rose, but Melo audibled and posted up instead.

Really? this is probably the worst of anything. This is absolutely the easiest to defend as Melo has no triple threat in position during the iso plays. He dribbles through out his ISOs AND they know he is not going to pass unless he got pinned down on the pinch. By that time, his teammates are fully covered and shot clock is winding down.

Ball movement is what creates opportunities in mismatches, open uncontested shots....

whats really disappointing is that neither jennings or melo went for the tip out by rose. jennings would have gotten that ball if he tried.
