Bulls' Joakim Noah makes Sixers forward Thaddeus Young fall down with nice fake.

NBA ankle breakers: Steve Nash, Russell Westbrook, Tony Parker... Joakim Noah.

One of those names may seem out of place, but this highlight from Game 2 of the Bulls-Sixers series shows that those four names actually have something in common. Each player has embarrass a defender guarding him.

While the point guards have ankle-breaking crossovers, the Bulls' center showed off a hard-to-handle move when he got the ball at the top of the key late in the second quarter. Noah started driving to his right as Philadelphia's Thaddeus Young switched over to guard him. Noah quickly faked like he was going to go into the lane before Young could get his feet set, causing the Sixers' forward to fall down.

Elton Brand had to leave his man, Carlos Boozer, open on the baseline to help down low, but Noah found his teammate for the wide open jumper.

It was one of Noah's five assists to go along with eight rebounds and 21 points, but the Derrick Rose-less Bulls were outscored 36-14 in the third quarter and went on to lose 109-92 at home.
