Iman Shumpert has been a spark in the Knicks' offense during the second half, creating plays and energizing the crowd with his athleticism. He threw down a ridiculous put-back dunk from a missed Carmelo Anthony three-pointer, reaching way back in the lane for one of the best dunks of the postseason.
The Knicks took a 47-42 lead into the second half after losing Game 1.
