Melo goes for 30

versus the clips.

great first Q, gets 14. sucks for the next three. then goes off in OT for another 11, including 3 3's. overall did not shoot particularly well but I think it's a function of him getting tired quickly and in some cases not working for easier shots.

the guy could become a scoring machine someday. at this point he needs to: (1) get in better shape, (2) be more active without the ball and (3) get on the offensive glass which should get him some easy points.

he also had 5 boards and 4 assists.

nugs lost in OT by 2.

melo 26 and 8 and 3 against da bulls.

also had 5 steals.

starting - slowly - to shoot better. that 1-13 outing was bad and the more recent 5-14 type games haven't helped.

again, needs to get in better shape so he finishes at the rim and at the line.

most likely rookie of the year.

consecutive games of 26 and 28 vs. GSW.

shot 8-15 in both games.

in the latter game, went 4-6 from three and 8-9 at the line. added 7 boards and 4 dimes.

notttttt badddddddd

We'll see what happens. :) And I'm pullin for Melo in this rookie comp. :)

Nice work carmelo
