Washington Wizards big man Kristaps Porzingis showed admiration for Chicago Bulls veteran DeMar DeRozan during postgame on Wednesday, calling the 33-year-old one of the clutchest/best players in the league (Bulls won 115-111 at home/DeRozan- 27 points/7 rebounds/4 assists/1 block/11-21 FG/5-6 FT).
(via Washington Wizards):
“He’s one of the clutchest players in the league, I would say. He’s always hitting big shots down the stretch and drawing fouls. I think Deni [Avdija] did a good job on him early on, fought through some screens, got him to turn the ball over, jump out of bounds with the ball in his hands and stuff. So I think Deni did a hell of a job, but he’s one of the best players in the league, and he showed that down the stretch.”
