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.

Ian Begley

Melo says "I don't think (the Bucks are) a team that we should have given up 120 to" after #Knicks' loss. More here: espn.go.com/blog/new-york/…

Alan Hahn

Melo talks about the #Knicks defensive struggles, and does it wearing a Clydesque Borsalino on @MSGNetworks: player.theplatform.com/p/TZlbt/raiMSG…

Marc Berman

Knicks' shiny new defense gives up 120 points to young Bucks as Melo praises Kidd's strategy nyp.st/ZMaNSg via @nypost

Ian Begley

Carmelo credited Jason Kidd for using lineups that gave the #Knicks trouble: "He went small ball, something we haven’t even worked on."

Marc Berman

Carmelo said in locker room things will look better once established starting lineup and rotation is set.

Ian Begley

Carmelo on the Bucks: "Not talking nothing away from them, but I don’t think they're a team that we should have given up 120 points to."

Scott Cacciola

Carmelo declined comment on Iman's hat.

Chris Herring

Carmelo: "We haven't has any consistency" with our lineups, but we can't use that as an excuse for our struggles.

Al Iannazzone

Melo said the Knicks hadn't practiced 'small ball' and credited Jason Kidd for throwing that at them.

Chris Herring

Melo, on tonight's struggle: "We gave up 120 points to Milwaukee. Not taking anything away from them."

Marc Berman

Looks a lot like last season. It's fourth quarter and Melo can't make a shot. Literally.

Charles F. Gardner

Michael Eric blocked Melo. You may never see that again.

Charles F. Gardner

Melo is back with 7:28 left. Maybe Fisher wants to win this one.

Scott Cacciola

Carmelo just Drake'd a 3-pointer.

Eric Pincus

Last fantasy post of the day - I was 11 pick of 16 - difficult spot - where I got Melo

Chris Herring

Positive: NYK assisted on 77% of their 1st-half makes, w/ just 5 TOs. Melo had 17, 6 rebs & 5 assists. Negative: NY allowed MIL to shoot 56%

Eric Pincus

Fantasy squad: Melo - Lawson - Gay - Pau - Crawford - Isaiah - Tristan - Henson- Augustin - Morrow - Bennett - Kaman - 8 starters - odd team

Fred Kerber

Beg to differ with Carmelo Anthony. Sure looks like he could win scoring title in #Knicks offense -- especially if he faces #Bucks 30 times

Charles F. Gardner

HT: Knicks 61, Bucks 56. Melo has 17 points for NY. Mayo leads Bucks with 15.

Chris Herring

*Carmelo finishes first half with 17 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists. Shot 5-of-12.

Chris Herring

Melo often played the entire first and third, and then had God-awful shooting numbers in the 4Q while leading the NBA in minutes last year.

Chris Herring

Another thing I like abt Fisher: Sitting Melo out w/ 2 mins left in 1Q. Gives him extra rest b/t qtrs, & can bring him back earlier in 2Q

Charles F. Gardner

Parker guarded Melo last two Knicks possessions. A Wolters three from corner puts Bucks up, 45-42.

Adi Joseph

Pick a band. Pick a lineup. Assign. Mick - Carmelo Keith - J.R. Charlie - Pablo Bill - Amar'e Ronnie - Andrea

Charles F. Gardner

Giannis matched up on Melo to start game with Parker on Quincy Acy at 4 spot.

Chris Herring

Something that might be worth watching for fun: Giannis has said that Carmelo trash-talked with him more than any other NBA player last yr

Andrew Sharp

Ramon Sessions? We're talking about Ramon Sessions. Ramon Sessions. Not a Melo, not a LeBron. Ramon Sessions.

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks down to 9 players if Dudley does not play. Knicks lineup: Amare at 5 spot, Melo, Calderon, Shumpert, Acy. Dalembert already a sub.

Chris Herring

Fisher says Calderon, Shumpert, Melo, Acy and Stoudemire will start tonight vs Bucks.

Kurt Helin

Has Kobe Bryant cost the Lakers Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George and others? dlvr.it/7GNCmt

Adam Zagoria

Bucks rookie Jabari Parker on playing the #Knicks tonight at MSG: "This is Duke's second home." Said he's excited to share court w/ Melo.

Steve Popper

Jason Kidd on Melo staying with Knicks: "I thought for him being home fits him just well. He’s in good hands with Phil."

Frank Madden

Bucks vs Knicks preview: Honestly: we're just hoping for 30-plus minutes of Jabari and Melo playing 1-on-1. sbnation.com/e/6778002

Marc Berman

Rambis speaks for 1st time since #Knicks hire. Calls Fisher "perfectionist'', says Melo will succeed like MJ-Kobe nyp.st/1DqfEr5

Alex Kennedy

Carmelo to score less in triangle, Lakers to waive Jeremy Tyler, and Jason Kidd says Nets wanted to fire him. RUMORS: basketballinsiders.com/nba-rumors-car…

Chris Herring

Melo says his scoring could fall this yr with the triangle. We looked at why he's likely to see a scoring increase: online.wsj.com/articles/trian…

Ismail Senol

Valencia'lı Filipe Augusto henüz yolun çok başında. Ancak pozisyonu, oyuna yaklaşımı, oyun tarzı ve sertliğiyle yeni Felipe Melo. İzlenmeli.

Carmelo Anthony on fewer back-to-backs: “That’s the dream” probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/10/19/car…

Ian Begley

Melo would like fewer back to backs; Cole's DNPs aren't a demotion & Bargs sits out of practice. Details here: m.espn.go.com/general/blogs/…
