Take note – story published 6 years ago

Latvia's NBA rookie put up a star performance on Sunday by scoring 40 points when his New York Knicks won the Indiana Pacers 108:101, according to the NBA. 

Porziņģis was able to help the Knicks to overcome a 19-point deficit coming into the fourth quarter, and he may well be named a deciding factor in the Knicks' victory. 

He spent 38 minutes on the field, blocking six shots, scoring eight rebounds and an assist. He scored 13/20 two pointers, two out of four three-pointers and eight out of nine free throws.

Porziņģis scored 24 out of the 40 points in the last thirteen minutes of the game. His previous record for most points scored was 38 and was achieved just last week against the Denver Nuggets. 

The Knicks will play the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday, having won five games out of nine in the current season.
