JJ Redick: It’s funny because I’ve gotten now used to, when I shoot the ball, and somebody comes underneath me, I’ll actually spread my legs out so they don’t hit me. It’s an unnatural motion and referees sometimes don’t give me the call but I tell them ‘If I don’t spread my legs out, I’m going to sprain my ankle’. So you have to somehow figure a way out to protect yourself. Sometimes if it’s late, like I thought the Zaza slide underneath was a little late, there’s nothing you can really do.
