Bizarro NBA: JaVale McGee and Knicks passing highlight top 10
JaVale McGee's game-winning putback in his Nuggets debut was picked as Wednesday night's top play, but it was a pass by Carmelo Anthony that stole the show.
In the fourth quarter of the Knicks' 82-79 win against the 76ers, Melo made what may have been the best touch pass in the NBA this season. Jeremy Lin, standing outside the 3-point line, whipped a pass to Anthony, who was under the basket. Melo then quickly sent the ball across the paint to Amar'e Stoudemire, who finished off the play with a dunk.
Alas, pretty passes get no respect, and the play came in at No. 8 in the top 10.
Stoudemire made two appearances in the top 10, his block of Elton Brand coming in one spot better at No. 7.
