While he's now part of a formidable duo with 2019 NBA Rookie of the Year Luka Doncic, Porzingis didn't necessarily want to leave NY - he just didn't want to play for the Knicks.
The Knicks bounced back nicely from consecutive blowout losses to Sacramento and Detroit that dropped their record to a league-worst 1-7 by overcoming Doncic's fourth triple-double of the season and winning their first meeting against their former center, Kristaps Porzingis.
Following matching his optimum-scoring 50 % in Dallas with 18 points ahead of halftime, Porzingis strike a driving finger-roll layup to get the Mavericks even early in the fourth quarter soon after they trailed by 12 late in the 3rd.
But the Knicks broke a 92-all tie with a 9-0 run.
The Mavericks (5-3) closed within 103-99 before RJ Barrett missed a pair of free throws, but Julius Randle collected the rebound, drew a foul from Porzingis - his sixth, ending his night with 30 seconds left - and hit both free throws for the 105-99 advantage. Julius Randle, who grew up in the Dallas area and finished with 21 points, capped it with a jumper.
Frank Ntilikina didn't put up the gaudy stats Porzingis and his new partner in crime, Luka Doncic, did, but he starred in what might have been the best night of his career, racking up 14 points, six rebounds, four assists, four steals and three blocks.

Porzingis, who scored 28 points, injured his left knee in his last game with the Knicks on February 6, 2018. He did not perform all over again until finally earning his Dallas debut this period when the Mavericks determined he would not enjoy the relaxation of previous year subsequent the trade involving 7 gamers and two draft picks.
Nearly exactly 21 months since that game, Porzingis played with a goal early and helped erase a 12-point deficit in the second half, finishing 4 of 8 from 3-point range with nine rebounds and five blocks coming off perhaps his worst showing with the Mavericks.
Barrett, the third overall pick in 2019 after Doncic went with the same choice past year, scored a season-low three points on 1-of-9 shooting. He also missed 5 of 6 free throws.
Knicks: Dennis Smith Jr., the key piece for NY in the Porzingis trade, missed his sixth straight game after the death of the point guard's stepmother. Smith rejoined the workforce in Dallas, but coach David Fizdale reported Smith was probably a further sport away from returning. He concluded three of 11. He was the only other double-figure scorer for the Mavericks with 14.

The Knicks' biggest lead was 84-72, but Doncic brought the Mavericks back almost single-handedly, his 8-0 run closing the gap to 84-80 by the end of the third quarter. "I thought (that) was the part of the game we didn't recover from", head coach Rick Carlisle said.
