Melo didn't do anything significant against the two big front courts he's faced so far in SA and Memphis, although he was able to adapt and play a really good game in SA anyway, just without any offense. I think it's yet to be seen if Carmelo can handle true big men at the 4.
He played a great 4 last year. He was terrific when Woodson took over and when Amar'e was out. Just like this time. He didn't score in San Antonio, but he created offense for his teammates, which he has been criticized for not doing since forever. Memphis is arguably the best front court in the league and came on the 2nd night of a back to back after the San Antonio game.
The game was only close for half a quarter when the Hornets hit four threes in a row. The Knicks blew out a bad team on the road while resting most of their starters. That's a good sign.
Clyde said Knicks have had the hardest schedule in the NBA based off opp. Winning pct.
Woodson is a Godsend. It amazes me how flexible and adaptive he is. And that's with Stat and Shumpert injured and Novak having a horrible year.
So many theories have been dismissed so far. Lin, Melo, Dantoni, age.
Go Knicks. Best team in the EC.
My only concern is that, besides the Heat game, we've had one really bad quarter in every game. Other then the Grizz game though we always come back with a vengeance, which might be even more telling then the bad quarter.
This is disconcerting with Melo. I have no idea why he doesnt get calls inside when it seems like he gets hammered every drive, every shot.
I hate when refs call every foul but with the Knicks the refs seems to have it in for them every night. Top be fair, the Knicks have been on the road a lot and these corrupt refs always favor the home team -- I guess any refs for that matter.
