12 PLAYS OF CHRISTMAS: NUMBER 8

AMAR’E REJECTS DERRICK ROSE (2010)

No. 8 – It was all about defense in the Knicks’ win over the Bulls on Christmas back in 2010. Coming into the game, the Knicks ranked 28th in the league, but on this day they brought their “A” game. Playing in his first Christmas Day game as a Knick, Amar’e Stoudemire led the way with six blocks, including this rejection of Derrick Rose that set the tone for the rest of the game in the first quarter.
