Carmelo Anthony on LeBron/Cavs: "It took time in Miami for him. It's going to take time here. He'll figure it out. They'll figure it out."
Also interesting about last night: Fisher kept Melo on the bench w/ 4 fouls until the 6:34 mark of 4Q. Melo then scored 9pts (66.7%).
Doublechecked it w/ Melo. He said, "You know, I was in Denver for a few years." I said, yeah, but figured NBA would give that stage to Darko
Mildly interesting tidbit - Carmelo said he was in Cleveland for LeBron's 1st game in 2003. Beat him then, too, and held him to 7 points.
Melo: "Great win for us. Great road win. It tested us mentally to see how we’d bounce back from last night.''
Melo, on spoiling the party tonight here in Cleveland: "We got our party spoiled last night. So it felt good to spoil their's tonight."
Just spent the past five minutes laughing at that Phil Jackson and Carmelo video. Reasons I love the internet, man
Someone effed up sending Melo an invite to LeBron's big homecoming party
Carmelo Anthony had 25 points (9-17 FG, 2-4 3PT, 5-7 FT) 6 assists, 2 boards, +9 rating & 34 minutes in the win for the Knicks over the Cavs
Fisher coaches his butt off and Melo hits a gigantic, tough baseliner for sealer. Wonderful night for Triangle and Jackson Era. Wonderful.
Strong performance by Knicks that couldn't be predicted after last night. Melo looking for his shot early after passive start Wed. helped.
Knicks win, 95-90. LeBron & Carmelo hug. LeBron finishes w/ 17/5/4 & 8 TO's. Irving w/ 22/5/7. Carmelo w/ 25. And Cavs in Chicago tomorrow.
Big win for the Knicks. That was an amazing shot by 'Melo.
Melo finishes w 25 pts and 6 assists. JR w/ seven assists. Knicks had 30 assists as a team -- more than they had in any game last year.
Fans starting to shuttle out with 8.9 left. Knicks' 3 guard lineup (with Carmelo at 4) worked down the stretch.
That J.R. 8-foot floater in traffic before the Melo jumper was PERTY.
That possession from Carmelo is making Thibs cringe right now. That's why Bulls wanted him so bad. He can create and hit big shots late.
Breaking news: Melo ices game vs Cavs, worth his 1 Billion contract with the Knicks.
"Why wouldn't I want the last shot? When I know I've already made it." - Carmelo Anthony's commercial back in 2005.
Carmelo Anthony sucked the life out of this building with that jumper over LeBron James. Sick, sick shot.
Melo is a BUCKET!!!!!!
Huge shot by Melo right there
