Melo's IQ is not an issue. He's a Gold Medalist, NCAA Champ, and perennial all-star. We win as a team and lose as a team. And in a team players have roles and responsibilities; Melo is a primary scorer and he actually did drive the rock. The pacers killed us on the boards because we don't rebound; because we're used to being jumpshot and tap-out happy. This was the culmination to what happens with our style, going cold, and being denied inside.
The answer is simple because it's mostly offensive, yet elusive. Either we:
1. calm down and hit our jumpers consistently (we lost the 2nd and 4th qtrs on Sun).
2. TC wakes up and invigorates the P&R game.
3. We get hungry, adapt to a tough inside game, start rebounding, and grind-it-out.
or we lose.
