Melo was fouled.
Melo also doesn't get foul calls like other stars.
So here we are.
And it would have been a HELL of a read and pass to see Porzingis. You just want to get a shot off and give yourself a chance, clearly the play was take a 3 and he felt the contact and was hoping for the foul. He looked wide open and even though Cousins was looming, it would have been an elite read and pass to rise above the defenders and get it to Porzingis.
And I'm not even a Melo fan, but I give him a pass on that one. He also made the right basketball play twice in a row with driving and getting the ball to an open teammate, they just didn't hit the shot.
