The Knicks have had Croatian Heritage Night (Mario Hezonja) and French Heritage Night (Frank Ntilikina). With Kristaps Porzingis no longer here, there apparently will be no Latvian Heritage Night. The president of Latvia attended Latvian Heritage Night with Porzingis last year. https://t.co/6vBvboDpT2
Sneaky play by Mario Hezonja here to swipe Kemba Walker coming back on defense and then a smooth pass to Noah Vonleh for the dunk in transition. Feel like Hezonja has played better lately defensively for the Knicks, getting into passing lanes and being more meddlesome.
