Amare's last five:
23.4 MPG, 4.8-8.2 FG on 58.5% shooting, 6.2-7.2 FT on 86.1%, 15.8 PPG and 5.3 RPG
Carmelo's last five:
41.0 MPG, 9.6-25.8 FG on 37.2% shooting, 1.4-6.0 3PT on 23.3%, 27.0 PPG, 6.2 REB AND 4.2 AST
Tyson's last five:
31.4 MPG, 2.0-3.0 FG on 66.7% shooting, 2.6-3.6 FT on 72.2%, 6.6 PPG and 11.4 RPG
Woodson's main point is that Carmelo has been flourishing at the 4. It's been a terrible and weird situation for us as the fans and the Knicks as a team that he's gone way downhill lately. He's not flourishing in any sense of the word. It started in Boston with the 6-26 showing. He's sucked with Amare on and off the court and his FG% for the season has fell to 44.9%, far away from Durant's 52-53% shooting.
The trend in the numbers here sees Tyson getting almost no looks, Amare making the most of his and Carmelo overcompensating on misses by shooting more. And if you watch the games that's exactly what's happened. Carmelo had been a savior all season for us, but it's time for Woodson to sit him down and set it straight. See what's going on with him, because ever since Boston he's been even worse than last year's Carmelo.
With Felton back, I think it's time to get Amare in the starting lineup, because obviously he's been ramping up back to star form and this team is starting to look ugly as currently constituted.
Until Camby and/or Wallace return, I think we'll have to see 35 minutes a night out of each Amare, Chandler and Melo.
