Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis is an unstoppable force — with his ability to score in the paint and shoot from the perimeter — and opponents will do whatever they can to attempt to slow him down.
For Jonas Jerebko, that entailed trying to draw a foul call with a flop that failed miserably.
Jerebko was defending Porzingis near the elbow during Wednesday night’s game, when the seven-footer put the ball on the floor and attempted to dribble by his opponent. Jerebko knew he was beat on the play, so all he could do was throw up his hands and try to sell the (lack of) contact in a pathetic flop attempt.
He did not draw the foul, and Porzingis finished off the play by throwing down a powerful dunk over Derrick Favors.
It’s safe to say Porzingis won that round — as he often does.
