Isaiah Whitehead goes into ‘Hulk’ mode at Nike TOC — Cuse Clicks

If you’ve ever watched guys like Isaiah Whitehead compete, you know that for some reason they perform best under pressure, with their backs against the wall, the crowd in their ears and the opposition clapping in their face. For Whitehead (a 2014 PG who is down to Syracuse, Arizona, UCLA, Miami and Indiana), it’s almost a Hulk-like transformation; when he gets angry, his face becomes stoic and he plays like a man possessed, scoring at will and without any regard or courtesy for his opponents. Whitehead came out on a mission in the second half and overtime, picking his spots and scoring from all over the floor. He scored 20 of his 25 points during this span, and using a full-court press, NY used a big third quarter to close the gap.
