We are winning games. Do i really give a **** if melo scores 20 ppg or 30? no.
But i do care if him missing shots means us losing games. The wrist and shoulder injury has tweaked his shot and he's still working on getting that rhythm back. I suspect it will be a few more weeks until we see the 45%+ shooting we expect.
Exerting himself on the defensive end probably doesn't help his offensive numbers, but it does help us win games. As long as we are winning this is acceptable, but we will need his production in the post season.
