7SoM: Fast BreakDown 5, Knicks vs Raptors

Before the customary fouling, last night's Knicks-Raptors game came down to a final in-bounds play where the Raptors attempted a three in hopes of tying the game. In 7SoM: Fast BreakDown 5, I go over how the play was designed and how the Knicks defended it.

The Raptors had plenty of time to get off a shot which is why they ran the misdirection with Jarret Jack.  Other than Raymond Felton and Danilo Gallinari having dissenting opinions on whether or not to switch, the Knicks defended well and understood both the situation and their assignments.

Jack wasn't going to get a three up over Amar'e Stoudemire so there was no need to double the baseline. Wilson Chandler knew they could afford giving up a layup and wisely turned his head and noticed Leandro Barbosa's antics as he came off a screen from Andrea Bargnani. Notice how Chandler doesn't fall for the pump-fake either, and stands straight up to contest the shot.

1-0. On to the next one.
