Will Porzingis play in Game 5 of the NBA Championship? Boston coach: “I don’t know”

Kristaps Porzingis

Will Kristaps Porzingis (Boston Celtics), who is evaluated as a player who will decide the direction of the National Basketball Association (NBA) championship, appear in the fateful Game 5? Even though the game is one day away, it is still undecided.

Boston coach Joe Magzula said in an interview with ESPN held at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on the 16th (local time), “I haven’t talked to Porzingis yet.”

He added, “We’ll talk about it before training. So I’m not sure what condition Porzingis is in yet,” and added, “But Porzingis is doing his best to come back.” 메이저사이트

Boston, whose chances of winning the championship were greatly increased by winning the first three wins in the championship game (4 wins out of 7), lost 84-122 to the Dallas Mavericks in the 4th game and lost momentum.

Boston, which played games 3 and 4 at American Airlines Center, Dallas’ home, will now return to TD Garden for game 5. Game 5 begins at 9:30 a.m. on the 18th, Korean time.

Porzingis, who is over 220cm tall and has an accurate outside gun, is the core of Boston’s defense behind the goal. But injuries are frequent.

Porzingis, who was unable to play in the first round of the playoffs (PO) against the Miami Heat at the end of April due to an injury, succeeded in returning in time for the championship game. 슬롯사이트

He played only 20 minutes in the first game and recorded 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 blocks, leading to a 107-89 victory, and in the second game, he scored 8 points in the first quarter, putting Dallas, his ‘home team’, in a losing streak.

However, Porzingis, who injured his left ankle again during the second game, was unable to take the court afterward, and in the meantime, Boston suffered a blow to Dallas.

Boston won the third game 106-99 even without Porzingis, but unlike the two games where they easily won, the game was close until the end, and they lost heavily in the fourth game.

One of the losses in the 4th game, which was a crushing defeat by 38 points, was that the team was inferior in height.

While Dallas grabbed 52 rebounds, Boston grabbed only 31. This is why Porzingis’ return is desperate from Boston’s perspective.

If Boston wins Game 5, it will win the championship for the first time in exactly 16 years since the 2007-2008 season.

At the time, when Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce were playing, Boston took the throne by defeating the LA Lakers, led by the late Kobe Bryant, in Game 6 on June 18, 2008. 토토사이트 순위
