VIDEO: Fred VanVleet blows by Markelle Fultz with the nasty hesitation crossover
VanVleet was pushing the ball coast to coast and appeared to be stopping his dribble to call out a play. But the Raptors guard decided on a split second to drive past Fultz with a nasty hesitation crossover, freezing him in his tracks and getting to the rim unmolested for the layup.
Fred VanVleet okayyyy 👀

VanVleet is one of the craftiest guards in the league. He doesn’t have the size and quickness that some of these other elite point guards have.
However, his shooting skills warrant attention from beyond the arc and he’s able to blow by defenders since opposing teams are always going to jump out on his shot attempts.
VanVleet entered Wednesday averaging 17.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game for the Raptors.
