Landry Fields Drives In Unblocked For And-1 Layup...Off An And-1

New, 1 comment

The former Stanford Cardinal wing player was considered a throw-in as the 39th pick in the NBA draft for the New York Knicks, but he's showing his worth week-in, week-out. He won Rookie of the Month honors for the Eastern Conference in November, and is currently averaging 10.4 points per game on 51.8% shooting and a 37% three point clip, along with 7.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game.

And he's been doing little things as well. Like in the first half against the Chicago Bulls on Christmas Day, Ronny Turiaf gets fouled and converts the layup. Fields, knowing Turiaf isn't the greatest of free throw shooters, begins to sneak inside and run toward the basket the moment the free throw leaves Turiaf's hands. Kyle Korver falls asleep and is left chasing down Fields, but it's too late. Fields gets inside, draws the foul from Ronny Brewer, tips it up for an offensive board, and got the AND-1 layup. It's stuff like that which endears Spike Lee to #6.
