Hopefully Melo will start getting more calls because he's getting pounded by opponents and the refs are missing much of that. Then there are the crazy fouls called on him like the 5th foul yesterday.
In contrast, LeBron hasn't had a foul called against him in 6 games.
I was at the Bulls game, and I had not seen a home team get that kind of treatment from the refs... that being said, the reason the Knicks were down 25 was because the Bulls were shooting around 48 percent from the field in the 1st half due to the Knicks not playing defense. Oh, and the Knicks kept missing wide open looks, shooting in the low 30%.
When this team plays like they did against the Nets, with an inside/outside game, they can beat anyone. The Felton/Chandler pick and roll when it gets going is beautiful to watch. But they are mostly a jumpshooting team. And that can lead to big trouble in April.
