Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony drops 50 on Heat (VIDEO)

I don’t care who else is or isn’t on the court — scoring 50 points in an NBA game is balling.

Carmelo Anthony was balling against the Heat when he dropped 50 on Tuesday night to lead the Knicks to their ninth straight win. The most amazing part — he didn’t take one shot in the paint all game. Every one of his shots was a jumper from the outside and he still hit 18-of-26.

When Carmelo is going he can score with the best of them.

    “I don’t care who else is or isn’t on the court — scoring 50 points in an NBA game is balling.”

    Thanks for a real perspective Kurt. Unline the other article on this site that says Melo’s 50 is “diminished”.

    How often do players score 50 in a game? Lebron played the Bobcats this year and he didn’t score 50, so saying Melo scored 50 but only because Lebron and D Wade didn’t play is a silly statement (and I’m not saying Melo is better than Lebron because he’s not.)

        One more correction, the article said diluted not diminished lol.

      I don’t think the 50 is diminished. I do think the Knicks win is diminished if you are trying to use it to say they are better than the Heat or can beat them in the playoffs. And I don’t think he gets that 50 if LeBron is on him all game.

    It IS diminished, because no way he gets it against a proper Heat line-up. Lots of folks can go for 50 against Bosh and scraps.
