Down the stretch, the Knicks needed the reigning Defensive Player of the Year to step up because of Kenyon Martin's absence. And he did in a big way.
Though he played 39 minutes in the game, he showed very few effects of being tired in the 4th quarter. He made some awesome rotations and played some tough help defense on Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Even Hubie Brown made mention on the broadcast a few times of Chandler playing great defense. Though OKC scored 31 points in the 4th, they would've scored more if not for Chandler. He was a key figure in the Knick win.
