Film Cut: Pushing the ball off misses

David Fizdale emphasized all through Summer League and training camp the importance of using forwards to rebound and push the ball off misses. Without Kristaps Porzingis, the Knicks need to create easy baskets in transition in order to have an efficient offense.

In the play highlighted above, you can see how Lance Thomas keeps the ball off the rebound, instead of handing off to the nearby guard, and how that creates a mismatch on the other end.
