Novak is more important to this team.. those stats are from right after thanksgiving.. Im sure novak is averaging much more points a game... When hes on the floor with melo is opens up the floor spacing for Melo and vice versa.. And he has worked on his game.. U has worked on creating his own shot off the dribble and it has worked out .. He takes maybe 2 or 3 dribbles but its still creating.. and the pump fake and step up is money
