JR and Melo have been the 2 healthiest scorers on the team. Now that the team is starting to fill out i suspect the offense will be shared a bit more. I have no problem with JR and Melo shooting most of the shots. I just don't want them shooting over 20 a piece, that many shots for just 2 players is going to take other players out of the game. Imo, you better win if you take that many shots. If it was me...i'll be more embarrassed than upset if I scored 30, 40 points and still lost the game.
look at the end of the Celtics game I was frustrated with the isolation as well as other times....but sometimes that is our best option!

When you do not have PG's who can drive and cause defensive breakdowns the alternative is one on one...and we do possess one of the best 1 on 1 players in the Game!
People thought the samething about Ewing! They felt his game stopped the flow of the game
another point of consideration...Melo has become a more willing passer..so if/when a double comes he kicks it to the open man..the isolations do result in getting open shots
During The Nets game he drove and dumped it off to Amare for a dunk twice and found JR and Shump on kick outs
Do we need to be more than an ISO team...of course..Melo going ISO will only go but so far
And I think Woody knows that! He has praised his PG's almost as much as Melo over the course of the season he knows it takes ball movement and team work...but the last month has been like the end of last season with Amare hurt no starting PG and Melo and JR being our best 2 scores...the only option is to set up plays from The ISO!

^^When you’re used to cheering on a team that has been sucking for over a decade the anxiety attacks will appear more frequently, The panic seems to come and go so don't take it too seriously. Perhaps one of the new features for this site should be some paper bags. Might help with the hyperventilation and nausea...
