The buzz surrounding something perhaps going on between Kristaps Porzingis and Jen Selter took another turn when the Instagram model made another appearance Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.

Selter sat a few rows off the court while taking in the New York Knicks’ 122-119 double-overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls. When approached by the New York Post about the possibility she was there to see Porzingis, Selter played it coy, only smiling and saying the two were “just friends.”

However, Selter’s mother, who joined her daughter at the game, added, “You never know.”

Selter’s reluctance to say anything more about a possible budding romance with Porzingis did not stop her from praising the Knicks star, who posted a 24-point, six-rebound, four-block performance in the loss.

“He was great as always,” Selter said, who also attended Knicks-Lakers game on Dec. 12.

Porzingis and Selter have exchanged pleasantries on social media, and her latest tweeted dispatch promoted Porzingis for the 2018 All-Star Game. She even slipped in a “Unicorn” reference, which of course is Porzingis’ odd nickname.

And yet, nothing so far indicates Porzingis and Selter are anything more than friends. That said, this isn’t the first go-round for Porzingis when it comes to getting flirty with a famous Instagram model. And for Selter? She’s attracted the interest of another New York professional athlete, although he made his play in a very clumsy manner.
