Carmelo Anthony didn’t have to deal with LeBron James on either end of the floor Tuesday night. It made his night much easier and more difficult for the Heat. Anthony destroyed the Heat’s defense and matched his career high with 50 points and led the Knicks to a 102-90 victory over the defending champs, who were without James and Dwyane Wade because of injuries.
Late in the game, some Knicks fans at American Airlines Arena chanted “MVP” as Anthony attempted foul shots. He was the MVP this night as he carried the Knicks to their ninth straight win their longest since the 1993-94 season
