If i was Dantoni i would be really challenging Melo and Amare to play defense during practice. I would have Melo guard just about everybody on the team, from the point guards to the power forwards just to give him different looks. If he can shut down Shumpert, JR Smith, Lin, Davis, and Stat in practice then that would prepare him for his opponents. And Antoni should have Stat guard Melo at times, and Chandler too. Challenge them, do whatever it takes to improve their defense.
Nice dunk there by Stat
STAT is dunking with authority tonight.
Big assist from shumpert to stat..and thats why he should start!

No way Fields should be starting over Shumpert
