It's more like 20 points on 15 shots, when you take out those hot potato rebound possessions.

A person with solid observational skills will know what I was talking about in point #2. It's painfully hard to miss, given how Jeff Van Gundy blew his load praising Melo for keeping the ball alive and "leading by example".

If he was really chucking, they likely wouldn't be up by 10 over the heat. They were good shots and extra possession.
Any way you slice it that idiot is 8-23. So you're telling me he isn't a chucker HaverCHUCK?
