Tyson Chander came out a man on a mission against the Nets Monday night, rolling hard to the rim on pick-and-rolls and getting some good looks. He had 10 points by midway through the second quarter to lead the Knicks at that point.
Oh, and there was this putback dunk in the middle of all of it. That was a monster.
The Knicks and Nets crowd sounded like they were there for a hockey playoff game and Chandler was feeding on that and having some fun.
Heat’s Gerald Green with breakaway, windmill jam (VIDEO)

Green 12 points to go with five rebounds and looked good for the Heat on the night.
Chris Bosh with between-the-legs pass to cutting Dwyane Wade (VIDEO)
Miami is going to be a lot of fun to watch this season (if they can stay healthy).
They’ve got athletic, active players who want to run, who move off the ball, and they have good passers. For example, watch Chris Bosh go between the legs to Dwyane Wade in the Heat’s preseason game Sunday.
Bosh had 14 points, and Wade had a dozen, but Charlotte won the exhibition.
