Our bigs' playmaking ability is a huge asset for the Zags this season (pun intended as well!). Dick Vitale commented on Karno's passing and he has definitely had some eye-popping passes under the basket.

Yesterday 8 of 20 of the Zag assists were provided by Zag interior players (Karno, Sabonis, Wesley, Wiltjer). Obviously, some of those occurred outside the paint, but the point is that our bigs are looking to be aggressive even when pinned under the basket. They have obviously been drilled to realize that if they are being doubled that it is an opportunity to find an open teammate.

That type of heads up aggressive play is emblematic of the team play they are embracing and it can be punishing to opponents.
