Not a Butcher on Defense:
The surprising thing about Zinger’s debut today was that it revealed his ability to play a little defense.
Don’t think he’ll be taking home any NBA Defensive Player of the Year awards anytime soon, but also realize this isn’t the awful Amare Stoudemire either. He’s legit in the way he slides and moves his feet while guarding bigs extended or even wings 15-feet away from the hoop.
The one question (something I personally wanted to see today) that’s still at-large after today will be whether or not he’s strong enough to defend the low-post.
