This award is well deserved. There was one point in the season where everyone thought Jamal Crawford would get the award, but J.R. put the team on his back when Melo was out and changed his game completely with...
Down by four at halftime of game one of their playoff series against the Celtics, the Knicks clearly needed to come out in the second half with a little more pep in their step.Alas, surprising to some was the fact that it was not New York's defense that needed an injection of life, but their offense instead.
