He finished at 51% and 41% from three....8 rebounds and 5 assists.
Come on man,we all know Houston is trash defensively. When he faced a defensive team in Memphis his shooting percentage plummeted and was even worse than Melo's against the Pacers.
Pacers and Grizzlies are pretty comparable defensively,I would even say Hibbert is a better shot blocker than Gasol and Paul George is a better defender than Prince (who's getting old).
He shot so poorly despite refs protecting him like he's some kind of endangered species.
Durant is a better player than Melo. But you attacked Melo for shooting poorly,it would be unfair to give Durant a pass for that.
And being tired is not a valid excuse. It's the playoffs. Everyone is tired the same. Melo even played injured while Durant was healthy as it gets.
