Javale McGee didn’t have much of an issue getting to the rim against the Pistons and I don’t mean a Piston defender but the entire Pistons’ team.
On the first play in this video, McGee goes between a couple Pistons for the dunk and the foul. Poor defense but easily excused.
On the 3rd play on this video, McGee catches the ball from behind the 3 point line while three Pistons stood in the paint with the other two just a foot away. So you are probably thinking one of them will just stand in the way and take a charge while McGee tries to jump from the free throw line again. Nope!
What happened was the defense split like Moses was coming through and allowed McGee to run straight to the basket and get an easy two.
The Bad Boy Pistons and Wallaces era Pistons are shaking their heads in shame.
