Dallas Mavericks star Porzingis left with bloodied face after bar fight in Latvia (VIDEO)
The 2.21-meter-tall basketball player is seen nursing a bloody forehead in the footage and seems to be on edge, as he pushes a woman aside while shouting angrily at a police officer, who asks him to “please” calm down.

It’s currently unclear what happened at the bar, with local media speculating that Porzingis might’ve been hit with a beer glass on the head. There were also claims that the athlete could’ve broken his arm in the subsequent brawl.
TMZ reported, citing witnesses, that Porzingis was jumped by a group of Russian men, who were allegedly unhappy about his recent move from the New York Knicks to Dallas.
The 23-year-old has been out of action for more than a year due to a knee injury, but the Mavericks still snapped up the talented attacker earlier this year. Porzingis was staying in his hometown of Liepaja on the Baltic Sea during his recovery.Also on rt.com ‘F*cking giants’: Warriors coach Kerr quotes Liverpool boss Klopp as his team beat Rockets (VIDEO)
