He has been shockingly bad this series. No heart.
it's not that he was WIDE OPEN during the regular season ... because he wasn't, and I could bring out the numbers and the diagrams to show you that he wasn't, but it'd be easier if you'd just believe me that he wasn't.
the heat close out half a second faster than a normal team and that half second is enough to take away a clean look for him.
peja had the exact same problem last year and you're not going to tell me peja wasn't a great shooter.
also, the knicks have just had poor ball movement and no one to collapse the defense (except melo ... but that's a whole other matter). i more or less expected this problem.
if novak were on a team like the heat who have lebron and wade who both attract so much defensive attention, he'd be killing it right now.
