Kristaps Porzingis on Potential With Luka Doncic: “You Could See in the Bubble, The First Glimpse”
Kristaps Porzingis spoke to media following Mavericks win aginst New Orleans Pelicans.
Porzingis put up 36 points in Mavs win and spoke on his offensive capabilities.
“What’s clicking for me offensively is that I have just been putting in a lot of work and I have been patient. I have been patient in knowing that the shots are going to start to fall. I am going to find opportunities, and I am not going to force it much. At the same time knowing that I do have to stay aggressive, otherwise it is not just going to fall out of the sky. That’s been my mindset and it was just one of those nights where the shots were falling. I was open, I was in the right place at the right time and that is it”, he finished.
Porzingis also spoke on the Mavericks chemistry and improvement defensively.
“We can get so much better defensively it’s crazy”, he said. “That is where we can make the most improvement this season. We started out not playing the best defense, but the positive thing is we can get a lot better. Once we have our roles clear, the way we play clear, our subs and all of that is lokced in, it is better for everybody mentally. When you go out there and you know you are going to play, that is when you create the chemistry. You want to go hard for the guy next to you, for your brother. It is a process, but I believe that this group, with the mindset we have now, we are on our way there.”
Finishing the interview, Porzingis spoke on the Porzingis-Doncic duo in Dallas.
“I think you could see in the bubble the first glimpse of how we are capable of playing together and what we are capable doing. Tonight, again, was one of those games when things were clicking for the both of us, and he was finding me open on the 3-point line. It gives both of us energy and builds the momentum for both of us and the team. When we get going like that, we are knocking down shots and making the extra pass, it feels so easy and natural. Not every game is going to be like that. There’s going to be different teams playing different coverages and all of that, but I believe we are on the right path.”
