New York Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau says he doesn’t think just one defender can stop Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with the ball in his hands.

(via MSG Networks):

“That’s the challenge, you can sometimes play him great, but he can still make shots. His size. He gets to his spots. He elevates. And then the thing that’s tough is he’s got a great pivot game. So he draws fouls. I think he got to the line 13 times. That’s one of his strengths. But a player of that magnitude, the only thing you can do is you gotta guard him with your team, and you gotta try to make him work.”
