Seriously, in every literal sense of the word, he got punched in the face tonight by Kaman, down 1, with under a minute left, NO CALL.
I'm starting to think there's a conspiracy against Melo with the referees. It's getting extreme. When a guy gets punched in the face and doesn't get a call.
But hey, whatever.
The only thing that stings is I think this will drastically hurt the Knicks chances this season. Melo should be attempting 10 FTs a night like a LeBron or Dwight Howard based on his style of play. He's getting 6.6 now. He's always aggressive, always driving. But he never catches a break. And like tonight, it gives them a much better chance at losing than winning in close games if he doesn't get the call. This could be a theme this season.
