Watch: Kristaps Porzingis hits Steph Curry-esque shot from tunnel

Tuesday March 15th, 2016

Stephen Curry’s displays of shooting brilliance have become so commonplace that it can be easy to forget how difficult it is to do what he’s doing.

Among the three-point bombs and half-court heaves, Curry’s pregame routine of launching a shot from the tunnel at Oracle Arena is arguably as impressive as any shot he’s hit during a game. And despite it not being easy, Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis decided to give the tunnel shot an attempt himself, and like most things for the budding star, it looks like success came pretty quickly:

Hopefully Curry takes this video as a challenge to start shooting from the stands. We really want to see how far his range goes. 

As for Porzingis, this is totally normal for a 7'3" rookie, right? Asking for every other team in the Eastern Conference.
