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.
