The Knicks lost 112-101 to the Hawks at their home opener, but they at least got a pretty neat highlight from highly-touted rookie Kristaps Porzingis.

In the third quarter of the game, Porzingis stole a pass from Al Horford, ran the floor, shook Paul Millsap with a spin move, and threw down a one-handed dunk.

Porzingis is still extremely raw, but plays like this are why the Knicks took him fourth overall in the draft, and why fans should be excited about his long-term potential.
