Melo's got one of the best post games in the league period, and that's due to his strength and size advantage over every other swingman, and his quickness and superior footwork. He's got amazing footwork.
As for the Nugz, their defense is really coming along and everybody is helping out. They're missing JRs 3pt shooting though and Blake really needs to step up in that area also, he's much better than this.
But I've been impressed with the team as of late. Even in the loss to Detroit, their D was playing well, they just didn't and couldn't stretch the floor enough offensively without a healthy JR or any 3pt shooting. And Nene is really playing well defensively, and playing strong in the post, he just needs more touches.
