There are few advantages that are better to have over your opponent on the basketball court than size. As Washington Wizards point guard Ish Smith showed on Tuesday night, size doesn’t always determine who wins.
Cristiano Felicio, a 6-10 forward for the Chicago Bulls, learned that when he went up for the bucket against the 6-foot guard. Smith timed his jump perfectly and met Felicio near the rim, then grabbed the ball right out of his hands and took off the other way.
It’s not often you’ll see a player with a 10-inch advantage on his opponent get rejected like that at the rim, but we witnessed it in this game. Smith delivered an awesome highlight that everyone, except Filicio, could love.
