Kristaps Porzingis gets into it with Kent Bazemore

New York Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis stands at seven-foot-three and is a serious force to be reckoned with. Opponents have attempted to test the rookie’s toughness, but that strategy hasn’t worked out well for them.

Kent Bazemore attempted to ruffle his feathers in Tuesday night’s game by fouling him and then fighting for a loose ball. Porzingis walked right up on him and got in his face, but Bazemore did not back down. The two then had some words.

Porzingis obviously didn’t need any help, but a certain teammate stepped in and gave Bazemore a quick shove.

Melo to the rescue!
