[video] Chandler Parsons makes something from nothing

This was an interesting sequence.  The Rockets run a side screen to get Kevin Martin open at the free throw line.  Tony Allen snuffs it out.  Martin hands it off to Parsons and Allen reacts, thinking he’s snuffed this play out too.  The only problem is that he makes a costly error.

The play is interesting because it places light upon a tradeoff.  Shane Battier might not have recovered over the Scola pick.  But had he been able to, he undoubtedly would have known Parsons’ strengths and would not have gotten over-agressive.  It leads one to wonder: is the cerebral defender who knows his personnel superior to the instinctual athletic specimen?
