IN THE VIDEO ABOVE AND BELOW, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis will make their preseason debut after a long wait and missing the first game against the Thunder. Porzingis will be asked to take on a big role as he will face off against two elite big men in Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin. Porzingis and Doncic were not held out of the first game due to injury or any health concerns, but since it’s just preseason, head coach Rick Carlisle opted to play it safe and just have the young duo play in one of the two back-to-back preseason games. Both Porzingis and Doncic are expected to start against the Pistons.
