Sometimes the smart play is also the fancy play of the day. You can say a no look or a 360 layup sounds like more than the basic was used to make a play but in this case it seemed like the only way this amazing on top of amazing play could of happened. David Lee, who is having a great season, gets the board and throws the no look pass to the underrated Monta Ellis who scores around the defender by completing a 360 layup. You could also say Lee made the smart decision by passing to Ellis who can score under any circumstances.
