Anthony Davis rinsed by ‘nasty’ Kristaps Porzingis as Lakers lose to Mavericks

Kristaps Porzingis left Anthony Davis red-faced with an expert dummy before sinking a three-pointer in the Dallas Mavericks win over the LA Lakers.

The Staples Center crowd was left stunned by a third-quarter blitz from the Mavericks.

Luka Doncic led the way for the visitors as he bagged 27 points in the titanic NBA clash.

But Porzingis, who managed 15 points himself, turned plenty of heads with his effort in the third quarter.

While lining up for a clear straight shot at three points, Davis was hurtling back towards him in a bid to defend the attempt.

However, Mavericks’ No.6 cleverly sold Davis with a fake shot as the Lakers star’s momentum carried him way past Porzingis and all the way to the basket.

Porzingis steadied himself and sunk the shot, leaving his team-mates and Mavericks coaches in awe as he took his place on the bench after.

And he was trolled by many on Reddit after the game as fans reflected on Porzingis’ three pointer.

One joked: “Looks like a cat falling from the window lol”.

Another urged: “Someone PLEASE turn this into a shooting star meme!”

“Anthony "believes he can fly" Davis,” another captioned the clip.
