For tonight, Woodson said after the Spurs game that Melo would guard Randolph and give him help if necessary, but I think Melo needs a breack after taking a beating the last 2 games. Perhaps we'll see some of Thomas and Camby.
Melo takes a beating every night, moreso now that he's playing the 4 so much. for all the talk about stars getting all the calls it seems the opposite is true in Carmelo's case, he gets hammered around the basket but the refs don't protect him like they do other big names.
that being said, Woodson better be ready to play Camby and KT tonight, or we're gonna get crushed on the boards and in the post. they haven't played much lately because teams have been playing small against us, but we're gonna have to adjust to ZBO and Gasol.
