Nate Robinson is short (for the NBA) but still gets most of his publicity for big dunks above the rim. On Wednesday night, however, it was some lower-altitude moves that have fans marveling at Robinson’s skills once again.
With under three minutes left in the Bulls’ game against the Suns, Robinson received a pass near the left baseline and pump faked. Sebastian Telfair, who was guarding Robinson, bit on the fake — and bit hard. So, Robinson improvised and ducked under Telfair’s legs while the defender was flying through the air, cutting quickly to the hoop for an easy layup.
It’s pretty spectacular. Check it out in the video below, with a hat tip to the Bright Side of the Sun blog for this one.
