I understand the fact that you have to ride the hot hand but MJ would never let anyone take the game winner unless he has no other choice and they have a better shot ala Steve Kerr. Lin could drive to the basket late in the 4th Qtr of a playoff game and get stripped or commit a costly turnover because we wanted to ride the hot hand rather than ride a top 3 clutch performer. Glad for the win no doubt but i hope we go to our stars late in games.
Please don't compare Melo to Michael Jordan
I know he's our closer but we have plenty of guys who can hit big shots and we are nothing like the 90's Bulls.
