C.J. Miles mostly knocks down triples and bangs with opposing big men this season as his team’s nominal power forward. But just because the Indiana Pacers forward doesn’t rack up highlights like Paul George doesn’t mean he’s incapable of putting someone on a poster.
Get out of the way, JaVale McGee!
Note Dirk Nowitzki trailing the play, by the way. The 37-year-old is tasked with checking Miles here, a clear mismatch in favor of the Pacers. When Indiana announced its plans to play small this season, we wrote that the positive effects of that change would be sweeping – and athletic advantages like this one are certainly among them.
