To get himself through the wee hours last season with Laboral Baskonia, Bertans would often fire up New York Knicks games on his tablet and watch the only NBA player that shares his Latvian heritage. Kristaps Porzingis wasn’t what Bertans would call a cure for insomnia. “I would stay up late and watch all of his games I could,” said Bertans, now a rookie forward with the Spurs. “He was doing really good and playing a lot, so it was fun to watch.”
When the Spurs face the Knicks on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, Bertans and Porzingis will make international history. It will mark the first time two players from Latvia have shared the floor in an NBA game. In sports-loving households from Liepaja to Valmiera, it ought to constitute must-see TV across the ocean. “It’s a big deal,” Bertans said. “In Latvia, there’s going to be people staying up all night to watch.”
