Although he only plays about 25 minutes per game, Larry Sanders is the only player in the NBA averaging over three blocks per contest. In this matchup, it won’t be his defense, but Chandler’s offense that will be key. With Raymond Felton back, Chandler has his favorite alley-oop partner back in action. Chandler diving to the rim on pick-and-rolls will occupy Sanders, keeping him from rotating and erasing easy baskets. The Knicks should be able to generate some easy baskets near the rim when Sanders tries to prevent Chandler from throwing down lob passes.
