Secondly, Gallo's huge shots in the second quarter opened the game up for the Knicks and the biggest trend I see isn't just that he hits 3s, it's WHERE he hits them from.
When Gallo can hit the wing 3, spots behind the arc but more foul line extended than top key or corner, he and the Knicks are impossible to guard. Impossible. The same can be said for Wilson Chandler.
Hitting the shot and making the defense respect that part of the floor does 2 things:
1) it creates more space for Stoudemire either 1 on 1 or in the pick and roll and
2) it allows for action from Gallo off of it in terms of head fake drives and other moves to keep defenders off balance creating action towards the basket, and FT attempts.
Keep an eye out for that tomorrow...
