This isn’t exactly breaking news, but still funny to hear courtesy of CSN Washington.
“We knew Carmelo probably is not going to pass it,” said Martell Webster, who had a team-high 30 points. “The fact that we closed in on him, that’s big. Usually teams will play that 1-on-1. We don’t want to give him a clear look at the basket. Made him take a fallaway off one foot. We’ll live with that. Defensively, we were getting burned but we made the adjustment on the fly.”
They asked Melo why he basically dribbled out the clock against the Wizards and here was his answer.
Melo was asked why he hesitated when he brought the ball up for that lost shot. He said, "I won't speak on that. I have my reasons."
