Carmelo Anthony is finding it too easy to score right now, no matter who the Knicks are playing or who’s defending him.One night after torching the Heat for 50 points, Anthony seemed to be heading for that number again.
Anthony had to settle for 40 points in the Knicks’ 10th straight victory, a 95-82 win over the Hawks Wednesday night.Anthony might have scored 50 if he didn’t need a little rest or get help from his teammates down the stretch.
He had 36 at the start of the fourth quarter of a tied game, but was on the bench. Mike Woodson wanted to reinsert Anthony two minutes in, but he needed to catch his breath. Anthony has really been unstoppable this season. He is the best scorer in the NBA.
