Carmelo Anthony sets Knicks record with 30 straight 20-point games (VIDEO)

Jan 31, 2013, 10:53 AM EDT

The Knicks are a charter member of the NBA, a franchise founded in 1946 that has always played in Madison Square Garden and always been at the heart of New York Basketball. When you set a Knicks franchise record, you are overcoming some real history.

Which is what Carmelo Anthony did Wednesday in the Knicks win over the Magic — it was Anthony’s 30th consecutive game with 20 or more points. He broke a record that had stood for 51 years. A record the great scorers the Knicks have had — Bernard King to name the most obvious — could not achieve.

Congratulations to him. ‘Melo is having the best, most complete season of his career and he deserves the plaudits coming his way.

    Carmelo said all the right things in terms of giving his teammate credit, but we all know that for last ten games or so the team has been leaning on him. it was good to see a little bit of balance. when the second season starts we go nowhere if he has to score 40 every nite

      You’re right, too bad the Lakers and Kobe didn’t figure that out until half the season went down the drain. But they can always blame Mike Brown of course(scarcasm )
