Joakim Noah’s one of the league’s best big men: a phenomenal passer, world-class defender, and awkward but effective offensive player. You’d imagine he’d give a rookie like Mason Plumlee fits on both ends of the floor.
Enter Noah driving to the basket near the end of the first half and meeting THE SWIFT HAND OF THE PLUMLEE. Plumlee, making his second consecutive start, threw Noah’s shot into the stands and brought a loud “OOOOH” from the crowd.
Not bad to have a seven-footer with a 36-inch vertical.
