Gasol is obviously a better player but we're talking about defense here.
Houston's defense is trash,they did kill us in the regular season but that was because of their offense,not because they played great defense.
Sorry,you criticized Melo for poor shooting,it's time for you to do the same for Durant. NO EXCUSES,ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE HEALTHY AND PROTECTED BY THE REFS. MELO IS NEITHER.
Did melo have 3 games shooting above 47% while leading his team in three other areas?
yes or No.
here is the bottom line....
Durant shot 51% and 41% for the entire playoffs and his two bad performance did not affect his TOTAL.
Melo was 40% for the entire playoffs....29% from three
and did nothing else.
