Kristaps Porzingis pulls off one of best blocks of year, snatches ball out of midair (VIDEO)

Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis did another amazing thing during Sunday’s game against the Nets.

You almost have to feel bad for Spencer Didwiddie, who did a great job of getting penetration and creating a lane to the hoop on the play. Unfortunately, Porzingis came out of nowhere to block his shot — which entailed him literally snatching the ball out of mid-air by palming it.

The concentration, athleticism, coordination, execution — all of those add up to why that’s one of the greatest blocks we’ve seen this season.
