Melo has not been ice cold, he's third in scoring in the league, had several 30+ games and has carried us in most games.
He had a very bad game last night, but he's also playing injured, this is no excuse, but in a finesse sport like basketball it does make a difference when your wrist is hurting (not everyone is Kobe and can play through that, Melo is obviously not Kobe, but we all knew that before).
I don't know what to expect from this team for the rest of the season, in general this season provides surprising results almost on a nightly basis. We might beat Denver on Sunday but lose by 20 in Charlotte....we might even beat Dallas or San Antonio but lose to the Cavs, Wolves and Raptors.
This team is unpredictable, only thing I know is we're dreadful to watch this season and I'm sure we'll finish the season around 0.500 - just like last season and lose in the first round of the Playoffs.
