Chris Herring

Carmelo, who hit the game-winner tonight, was 1-of-16 from the floor last year in final 30 seconds of one-possession games last season.

Al Iannazzone

Absurd. RT @Marc Berman: Even if preseason, confidence-builder for Melo to hit game-winner after miserable late-game stats in 2013-14.

Adam Zagoria

#Knicks come from behind for 103-100 win over Wiz. Melo goes for 12 of 30 in 4th.

Marc Berman

Even if preseason, confidence-builder for Melo to hit game-winner with 13 seconds left after his miserable late-game stats in 2013-14.

Chris Herring

Melo shot 40% from the floor once he'd been on the floor for 30 mins in a game. FG% fell to 23% after he'd been on floor for 40 mins

Jonah Ballow

Melo: 11-for-19 from the floor, 2-of-6 behind the arc, 29 pts in 34 minutes. #Knicks

Adam Zagoria

Melo has 30 as #Knicks lead Wizards 103-100 in final home preseason game

Chris Herring

Just preseason, but Melo hitting that jumper shows the value of getting him additional rest early in the game.

Marc Berman

Fisher trying to post W for second straight game, getting Carmelo back in for the fourth quarter.

Mike Prada

Kevin Seraphin guarding Melo. Please make it stop, preseason.

Jonah Ballow

Melo about to check-in as #Knicks trail by just 1pt. Good time to test late game execution.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards down 51-50 at the half. Wall leads Wizards w/13p on 4/6, 2/3 from 3. Porter has 12p on 5/8. Carmelo Anthony leads all w/16p.

Alan Hahn

That possession by #Knicks all five players touched the ball, ended with Melo dunk. #triangle

Brett Pollakoff

Not bad. RT @Marc Berman: Drawn up by associate coach Kurt Rhombus RT @JBuono611 That Carmelo play was the Iso-sceles triangle.

Chris Herring

Another thing thats apparent w the triangle: Melo's teammates are often caught off guard by how often he's passing the ball in this system

Steve Popper

Know your geometry. that was a triangle RT @Marc Berman: Carmelo Anthony just tried to shoot through triple team, not triangle-like.

Marc Berman

Carmelo Anthony just tried to shoot through a triple team, which is not triangle-like.

Chris Herring

Knicks still have really poor triangle spacing at times, even with Carmelo on the floor.

Chris Herring

The Knicks' starting-lineup intros would have been really sad to watch if Melo had signed elsewhere. Who would they announce last? JR? Jose?

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards starters: Nene, Porter, Gortat, Temple, Wall. #Knicks: Carmelo, Jason Smith, Dalembert, Hardaway Jr., Larkin.

Adam Zagoria

#Knicks starting Shane Larkin, Tim Hardaway, Melo, Jason Smith & Sam Dalembert tonight vs Washington. Calderon, Bargs out

Michael Scotto

New York Knicks will start Shane Larkin, Tim Hardaway Jr., Carmelo Anthony, Jason Smith and Samuel Dalembert, coach Derek Fisher says.

Ian Begley

Derek Fisher says Carmelo & the #Knicks are debunking the perception that they're unwilling to move the ball. More: es.pn/1uETcnB

Steve Popper

Larkin, Hardaway, Jason Smith, Dalembert, Melo are the Knicks starters. Okay.

Al Iannazzone

Fisher is starting Shane Larkin, Tim hardaway Jr., melo, Jason smith and Sam dalembert tonight

Marc Berman

Larkin, Hardaway, Jason Smith, Dalembert, Melo are starters. Saving real one for Mont Royale..

Chris Herring

Fisher says Larkin, Hardaway, Melo, Jason Smith and Dalembert will start

Jeff Zillgitt

Story on Phil Jackson and Knicks has video graphic with spots on floor where Carmelo Anthony could excel in triangle: usat.ly/1rhqTdO

Jeff Van Gundy says #Knicks will make playoffs & Carmelo will "find a way" to have a great year. More: m.espn.go.com/general/blogs/…

Frank Isola

I stand corrected, you cannot vote for your own player. (So how come no one voted Melo MVP. Still messed up.)

Frank Isola

Here's what we need to find out: Who voted on behalf of the Knicks and why didn't they vote for Carmelo as a potential MVP? Messed up.

Frank Isola

Which player is the best at getting his own shot? 1. Kevin Durant 42.9% 2. Carmelo Anthony 25.0% (but wait, what about the triangle?)

Frank Isola

Not one GM voted Carmelo as the top small forward or power forward. In a related story, Bargnani didn't get a vote either.

Frank Isola

Which player forces opposing coaches to make the most adjustments? 1. LeBron James, 76.9% 2. Kevin Durant, 11.5% 3. Carmelo Anthony, 7.7%

Frank Isola

Phil Jackson tells ESPN that "Carmelo Anthony is obviously the team's only certified All-Star." Amare, your thoughts?

Steve Popper

In annual NBA.com GM survey Knicks don't get a lot of love. Melo, yeah. Brian Keefe gets a vote for best assistant coach.

Antonio Vazquez

Encuesta GM's #NBA: MVP LeBron James 67,9% Kevin Durant 21,4% Recibieron votos: Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

Al Iannazzone

In annual GM survey, Carmelo Anthony re-signing with Knicks received votes for "most surprising move of the offseason."

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo finished second behind Durant in "Which player is the best at getting his own shot."

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo Anthony also finished behind LeBron and Durant in "Which player forces opposing coaches to make the most adjustments."

Al Iannazzone

in annual GM survey, LeBron (67.9%) and Durant (21.4%) were picked as MVP faves. Carmelo Anthony was under 'Also receiving votes.'

Rick Bonnell

The 70s Knicks had this crazy idea: Move the ball until someone has a layup. Defend like crazy. Melo wouldn't relate.

Jeff Wade

OK RT @Rnava28 - Skin, reaching on Kobe article as are all haters. Every1 wants to play w/ Dirk? Every1 except for DH, DW, CP3, LBJ, Melo

Sean Highkin

Would be a huge blow for the Bulls if Butler misses first two games vs. Knicks and Cavs. He's the one who's supposed to guard Melo+LeBron.

Steve Popper

I guess the third question also could be Carmelo wondering, "Why didn't I go to Chicago?"

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

Una semana, siete días, 168 horas... dice Carmelo que él ya está listo. ¡RT si tu tampoco aguantas más! #EverybodyUp http://t.co/4l9LekWNiR

Ian Begley

His shot didn't fall late in the game, but Carmelo had a strong all-around game last night: 9 rebs (5 offensive), 6 assists, two steals.
