On the other hand Hawks lit us up for 104 last night and they were shooting 60% from the field.
My biggest problem with this team now is that they don't play any defense. Before they at least played defense in the 4th quarter,they were getting stops when they need it the most. Last night we didn't stop them,we just relied on Melo to score more than they can do.
Holding a team to 47% shooting is not good defense.
Ironically the 42% shooting game you mention was when we didn't have Melo and the team lit them up from three.
Both games we hit threes at a ridiculous clip, the defense was never there.
We been through this convo before.
19 threes in the first game, 18 in the second.
last night 16-27 from three.
The Knicks were a 2nd half defensive team....holding teams to 36 ppg.
