Lance Stephenson fakes out Knicks, drives for easy lay-up (GIF)


Lazy defense can continue to be mentioned among the New York Knicks issues this season. On Thursday night against the Indiana Pacers, Lance Stephenson received the ball on the perimeter before giving a soft fake for a three-point shot.

Carmelo Anthony bit on the fake for one reason or another, which left the lane wide open for Stephenson to go in for the easy lay-up.

It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
