Kristaps Porzingis upset with conduct of Bucks coach Darvin Ham
Kristaps Porzingis is not happy with the way Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach Darvin Ham conducted himself during a skirmish in Thursday’s game.
New York Knicks center Enes Kanter nailed Giannis Antetokounmpo in the face on a drive to the basket by the Bucks star during the fourth quarter. The two then went face-to-face for a skirmish. At the end, you’ll see Ham come into the picture to push Kanter away.

Porzingis, who is rehabbing from a torn ACL, stuck up for his teammate with a post on Instagram. Porzingis said “tht was some bs tonight!!! and that bucks assistant coach needs to sit his a– down before grabbing Enes like that. grab your own players not the opp. team. foh” he wrote on Instagram.
Kanter and Porzingis making noise about the matter could lead the league to look at disciplining Ham. Kanter entered the game upset about his benching to begin with, so it’s not a big shock his frustrations boiled over during the contest.
