Carmelo has been playing out of his mind for the past week or so. He’s scoring at will. Posted his 2nd career triple double. Blocking shots. Most importantly, he’s playing “smart” compared to his usual “never me a shot he didn’t like” self. The smartest thing an offensive player can do is notice a mismatch and when Melo had a shorter defender guarding him down low, Melo called for the ball and blew past him with the nice spin move before throwing down a monster dunk.
