Re: Round 1, Game 4 (April 25): Denver Nuggets at Utah Jazz
play 7, Dwill penetrates and Melo deflects ball out of bounds
play 8, melo block out and board
Melo is not getting a lot of defensive action because he is defending miles, who is not one of the jazz scoring options. Melo is aware enough to creep into the paint and help out on post entry passes and penetration, while daring Miles (shaky shooter) to shoot. That's what we call intelligence and IQ. It's essentially roaming, which is what guys like Wade, Bron, and Kobe do.
