Kevin Porter scored 19 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished out nine assists in his second appearance outside in the NBA to lead PAOK Thessaloniki to an 85 – 70 Greek League win over Karditsa.

Porter spent 38:36 on the floor and shot 5-8 on 2-pointers and 2-5 free throws. He also delivered four blocks while committing five turnovers in his first home game with PAOK.

Thanks to Porter’s performance, PAOK got closer to clinching one of the two top spots in the Greek League Play-Out tournament that will grant them a playoff ticket. The Thessaloniki side is now 10 – 15 while Lavrio and Miroslav Raduljica’s Maroussi are in pursuit at 9 – 16.

To be exact, PAOK is currently 8th in the standings with AEK being in the 7th spot with an 11-14 record after beating Lavrio 100-67.

Despite the recent turmoil in AEK, the players were paid and the team rallied back to get a key win, practically securing their playoff spot. Former NBA player Jordan McRae with 17 points was the top scorer of the winning side.
