Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra talked about the new look that big man Kristaps Porzingis brings to the Boston Celtics following yesterday’s 110-106 home loss (25 points/9 rebounds/3 assists/2 blocks/8-14 FG/2-4 3-PT/7-9 FT/+2 +/-).

Reporter: “Now you’ve seen him for a few games, how has Porzingis kind of changed the look and feel of this matchup? And how do you evaluate when he’s getting a shorter guy on him, but he’s also just kind of shooting over the top of those guys?”
Spoelstra: “I think it gives them a different look of somebody that’s… he’s not 6-9, so if you switch or do some different things, he can shoot it right over the top.
