08:03 PM ET 05.10 | The New York Knicks stormed back to even their semifinal series with the Indiana Pacers earlier this week, but there are still question marks about how long they'll be able to be dominant in the playoffs. One of those question marks is tattooed directly on Carmelo Anthony's shoulder, because how that shoulder holds up will determine how far the Knicks go in the postseason. Melo says his shoulder is "all right" and it clearly didn't hinder him in his 32-point Game 2 performance against Indiana. But while Knicks fans are puffing out their chests and letting the issue of Melo's shoulder roll off them, we must rewind the series back to Game 1 and ask ourselves if that shoulder had anything to do with Melo's performance in that game? If it did, it seems as though it's a matter of a few points difference. Melo posted 27 points and grabbed 11 boards in the Game 1 loss and he was arguably the only guy doing anything for New York.
