Nobody expected Denver to actually win, and the series is only 2-0.
How many times has Melo failed us in the playoffs? People are acting like Melo has went bizurk in the playoffs. Guy's had like what 2 good series with Denver? Inconsistent as hell. Remember game 6 against Utah last year?.
Doing the same thing NY is doing, without a max contract player. Denver with Melo? Our defense would revert back to completely awful and we'd have a play to make timely buckets. It's about the only thing were lacking.
In Game 1 you lost because no one could get a basket for you. (Yes i know there was a bad call but you had SIX more possesions, most of which were awful.) Game 2 you got run over. We lost our two best players so Melo had 42, 17 rebounds, played good D and almost willed us to victory with the JV as his teammates.
You really think you'd be worse off with Melo? Didn't you beat OKC with him? And are now 0-4 without him?
