Leigh Ellis, The Starters’ international man of mystery, might call this one a “corker,” but however you want to describe, it was an absolutely beautiful pass from Brandon Knight. Early in the first quarter of the Suns-Magic game on Wednesday night, Knight took the ball on the break and a found a streaking Marquese Chriss in traffic with an impossible-looking bounce pass that went between Nikola Vucevic’s legs.
It was one of Knight’s three assists so far for the game. The rookie Chriss has 10 points and three rebounds on solid 3-of-4 shooting for the Suns in 17 minutes of action. It’s a tight one midway through the fourth quarter as Phoenix has a six-point lead over Orlando.
