Smart Play of the Day: Dirk’s Game Winning off 1 foot fade away against the Magic

Published on March 31st, 2012 by Astramskas, David | 982 views

The Dallas Mavs have a lot of scoring options and a lot of clutch players but when you have a 7 footer that’s one of the best shooters in the league and can fade away off 1 foot and is known for hitting clutch shots the smartest thing you can do is draw up a play that simply says “Give Dirk the ball and let him win the game.” ┬áThat’s exactly what the Mavs did and the result was an awkward looking game winner followed by a disturbing game winning expression by Dirk. ┬áMy big question is “did he call glass?”
