I can't explain how bad Bass hurts this team. The mismatch should be the sf (Melo) guarding our PF. But Bass is awful in the low post.

Now if that had been Sully, ...
Carmelo is like 6-8 and 240lbs. Bass is 6-8, 245lbs. There isn't a mismatch.

Carmelo is a big strong physical quick forward. He can most power forwards defensively in the post. It's the only real big strong / tall ones that have an advantage on him down on the box.

Leave him on Sully in the post. I guarantee you will notice the mismatch.

Sullinger is one of those real strong power forwards. What is he? 270-280lbs? How many power forwards in the league have his bulk and strength in the paint?

I think you are asking too much of Bass (and/or most other role player level PFs) to be able to force a mismatch against Carmelo in the post. There simply aren't many guys who can do that. It is undeserved criticism.

I've never seen him force a mismatch on anyone.

Nice block by Stoudemire from behind on Sullinger. It looked like Sully had a wide open layup / dunk there.

I love seeing Terry pull up from 18-20 feet. I feel like that shot is going to go in every time. Such a smooth shooter off the dribble on those midrange and long two point range jumpers.

Of course, he missed both of those but I'd like to see Terry take more of those shots. They are really good looks for him.

And there are times where that deserves criticism.

Against Carmelo isn't one of them.

That's it, Sully dominating in the post.

A couple of nice plays by Sullinger. The block on JR Smith's drive. The nice finish over Amare a moment earlier. And finishing in the paint after Lee was stripped. Sully going to work.

Green doing a decent job on Melo, but he needs to stop reaching and just move his feet.

I am losing faith in Jason Terry.
