No Defense Won The Charlotte Game For Us

Looking at the above box scores, it seems surprising how the Knicks won.
It's also not that we rebounded more and therefore had more shots on basket.
The only place we shot more was on the free throw line.
My thoughts on this is that Charlotte played defense and therefor gave us tough shots so we missed a higher percentage but went to the free throw line more.
The Knicks on the other hand didn't play defense and allowed Charlotte a lot of free looks giving them a high % scoring. On the other hand, we didn't foul them.
If you look at the numbers though, the foul shots clearly won us the game.
And on a side note, just looking at Melo's and Stat's % over the last 9 games, it's shocking that they are "superstars". Their scoring %'s are ridiculously low.
If we let Bibby shoot any shot he wanted he too would put up 30% scoring percentages and score 30 a night.
