Al Iannazzone's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
Iman Shumpert felt disrespected by how the Grizzlies defended him and said he wanted to make them pay for opening
with a big man on him last night. But the big sagged and dared Shumpert to shoot.
“I’m not going to let somebody just back off me and disrespect me,” Shumpert said.
He scored 13 of the Knicks’ first 15 points and made his first six shots overall.
“We recognized that they put a big man on me,” Shumpert said. “I took it as disrespect. I came out aggressive."
