Kristaps Porzingis will make his long-awaited debut for the Mavs as they face the Pistons on Wednesday.
The NBA world would have liked to see Porzingis make his debut on Tuesday as the game was televised on National TV. However, it is better for Kristaps to debut in a game that has less of a spotlight as he takes the court for the first time since suffering a torn ACL. When asked about his return, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said, "I know he’s ready. He’s excited to get back out there. I just want to see him play within our system and just get him out there, really. He’s put an amazing amount of time, effort and diligence into his rehab.” I think we can all agree with Carlisle on his comments regarding Porzingis.
