If anyone watched this game tonight, you'd notice they avoided passing him the ball. I don't want to say that was on purpose, but Melo hardly touched the ball, a few times when Chandler or Amare would get it at the top of the key they'd look over his way and than pass the ball away from him. Melo also was not looking for his shot and looked lost. I think its Melo who needs to find his groove in this offense. If he isn't posting up in an Isolation Melo really struggles to score the ball which he shouldn't because hes a great scorer.
Here is something to think about, imagine if we could have Melo's effort on the defensive end, rebounding, and assist, while shooting with in the flow of the offense, this team would be close to unstoppable.
I hope Melo can see from this game when the ball is free flowing and other team mates are working together and there is great ball movement it creates easy shots.
Melo does deserve credit. He got 11 rebounds and 4 assists. But there is no reason he can't average 20/10 while playing in the offense. Overall we very much needed this win.
Melo needs to find his groove in the offense though, you can completely tell if he isn't posting for the ISO he struggles to find his chemistry. I think this can all be fixed.
