In the battle of the boroughs part three last night, the Knicks unleashed a play that the Nets couldn’t stop the whole night. It was a simple double pick and roll that took advantage of the Nets’ switching and the threat of Carmelo Anthony.
Raymond Felton gets the ball on the wing and begins to dribble towards the middle where two screens are being set for him.
The Nets switch on the Anthony screen which creates a little bit of space between Felton and his new man, Keith Bogans. The Nets have to be especially careful on the first screen because the screener is Carmelo Anthony. They don’t want to let him get the ball with a little bit of space.

The New York Knicks must have been practicing the alley-oop on their days off lately. I say this because center Tyson Chandler performed three of these against the Brooklyn Nets tonight. They were all pretty impressive, my favorite was the second one with about a minute and half to go in the third quarter. On that dunk Raymond Felton drove the lane and as the defenders closed...
