Kristaps Porzingis Shines in Washington Wizards Debut

The Washington Wizards made a major splash at the recent trade deadline, acquiring Kristaps Porzingis from the Dallas Mavericks. While Porzingis is often injured, he’s spectacular when he’s on the floor. 

The 7-foot-2 forward can make an impact both in the paint and on the perimeter. He’s also shown flashes of being a dominant defender at points in his career as well. 

On Sunday night, Porzingis made his debut as a member of the Wizards and had a productive performance. He finished with 25 points, five rebounds, and two blocks in a big win over the Indiana Pacers. 

While the Wizards likely won’t make the playoffs this season with Bradley Beal out for the year, Porzingis could emerge as a legitimate complementary piece alongside him. Moving forward, Washington could end up being very happy the Porzingis trade was made.
