Well, I mentioned Chris Paul with regard to Blake above.

So I got 2 of the 3 with more than 11.
I just had Wade way too high.

Not surprised Melo led the way.  He was great in the crunch for DEN, and must have had a few for the Knicks as well (my memory works better for general patterns than specifics these days).

Paul over Westbrook -- these are career based, so the greybeards have the advantage of longevity.  Plus Rustbrook had to share with Durant.  Westbrook also seems like the guy who ties the game to send it to overtime, more than the game winner type . . .

Yeah, both Melo and Vince are under-appreciated by the analytics types who can't measure how hard it is to conjure game winning shots in those situations, when percentages tend to tumble.

Thad Young recently said how much he hates getting the ball at the end of shot clocks, because he knows he can't make something happen. It's hard. Those are low percentage shots. There's a lot of value people don't get in a guy who can change a 20% opportunity into a 40% opportunity.
