That was vintage Carmelo Anthony Monday night.
His team needed a win and he put up 39 points hitting shots with a man in his face all night. He controlled the offense and the game in the second half. Watch the video.
The flip side is he shot a pedestrian 46.1 percent, he took the team out of any rhythm with all the isolations, but he scored a lot of points and the Knicks got a dramatic win. And they way they have played lately the Knicks will take even a win like this.
