How tall is Kristaps Porzingis? Height, wingspan and more measurements for Celtics center

Celtics star Kristaps Porzingis had been sidelined since the first round of the playoffs with a calf injury before he exploded in Game 1 of the 2024 NBA Finals. Porzingis wasted no time showing why he’s a walking mismatch for the Celtics, erupting for 11 points and two blocks off the bench in the first quarter.

The majority of Porzingis’ looks on offense came off switches on screens. He punished smaller defenders as he faced up to the basket and knocked down midrange jumper after midrange jumper, seeing right over the top of his opponent.
