Knicks fans cheer as Porzingis scores 29 in win over Hornets

NEW YORK — Rookie Kristaps Porzingis scored a season-high 29 and had 11 rebounds, and the Knicks beat the Hornets 102-94 on Tuesday night.

Less than a week after he just missed beating the Hornets when his 3-pointer was ruled after the buzzer, Porzingis couldn't be denied by defenders or the clock in the 20-year-old Latvian's biggest moment in the NBA.

The 7-foot-3 forward who was y booed when the Knicks drafted him with the No. 4 pick had fans chanting "Por-zing-is! Por-zing-is!" in the fourth quarter, shortly after his three-point play gave the Knicks a 93-81 lead.

Carmelo Anthony added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Knicks. Arron Afflalo scored 16.

Kemba Walker scored a season-high 31 for the Hornets.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Andre Drummond had 25 points and 18 rebounds and made crucial free throws when he was fouled intentionally, helping the host Pistons rally to a 104-99 victory over the Cavaliers

AROUND THE LEAGUE: Pelicans forward Anthony Davis left in the first quarter with a left shoulder injury and did not return in a loss to the Nuggets. … Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right hip and is out for the season. He's expected to be ready for the start of next season.

  1. Pitching on no rest backfires for Erasmo Ramirez, Rays

    The Heater

    ARLINGTON, Texas — After battling through a 61/2-hour affair Sunday in Minnesota that was the second-longest game in franchise history, Rays officials were quick to decide that even though Erasmo Ramirez had just worked the 15th and final inning, they would stick with him to start Monday's game in Texas.

    We are on quite a roll as a community. First, we had a Super Bowl drop from the storm clouds into our lap. It just reaffirms the fact that Tampa Bay is great at lap. And Monday it became official: Next year's NHL All-Star Game will be held at Amalie Arena. The best in the world will be here to shoot and score. And …
