Oh yea I forgot. Phenomenal
Oh yea I forgot. Phenomenal
Melo has 5 assists and it's not like he's just chucking away. Stop criticizing.
Our bench has been amazing tonight... J.R., Amare, Novak and Pablo.
kings are the worst team in nba,they have cousins who is a more talented mcgee,very immature,evans cant shoot,the rest of the players are bad players or mediocre except robinson who can be a good player
and what does Melo's scoring streak have to do with his shot being off? He scored 25 the other day but shot 30%... his shot has been off for a month, not bashing, just speaking the truth.
if your shot is off and you have a teammate on fire then Amare should be shooting more... thats how a team works... this is not about just getting Melo his numbers. the truth is when we were 18-5 Melo was shooting 19 times per game... and now he's back to taking 25-28 shots per game... if he's not on fire, thats not good basketball for us.

Not gonna bash Melo too much. Even when he's not shooting well, the difference is this year he's not taking stupid shots but rather shots that are within the flow of the offense.
But yeah, Amare needs to get the ball more.
Melo is one of the rare players in the NBA that can carry a team for a month or so when he's on fire... like the last month of last season.
but otherwise, he shouldn't be shooting 25+ times per game... not on this team... not with all the options we have. We look great when we move the ball.
yes! lets argue about melo and Amare! NOW!
Love Knick Fans.
You obviously put a heavy emphasis on efficiency, as evident with most of your posts talking about how great Gallo is. But let's get something straight, melo is a very unselfish player, he probably leads the team in hockey assists and the last week or so he's made a concerted effort to look for other guys when his shot hasn't been falling.
You're right, his shot hasn't been falling in since the Celtic game (cheerios.) He's been forcing his shot more, taking a lot more long range 2 point shots. But he does a lot for this team aside from scoring, and he's probably been one of the most active players as far as looking for Amar'e when he's out there on the court.
Reading some of these posts about Melo you would never think the guy was 2nd in the NBA in scoring.
Melo shot 6 times that first half, all shots were within the flow of the game.
He had 5 assists... One to Amare for a wide open fastbreak dunk, two to J.R. for two wide open 3's, one to Kidd for a wide open 3, another to Novak for a wide open 3. His shot might be off today, but he accounted for 14 points on assists alone.
And the ***** thing I said in the prior post was just joking wasnt really calling u a ***** just being able to say that twice sounded funny to me lol but everything else in my post I feel is true
Tyson rebounding has been crazy...
Tyson is gonna go for 20+ again
