Anthony is averaging 15.2 points on just 11.2 shots per game and is often being asked to fill the wings and get open. He has made 47 catch-and-shoot 3s this season, the best in the league heading into Monday’s games, edging Milwaukee’s Grayson Allen (46), according to Second Spectrum tracking. “He’s in a great rhythm,” James said. “He’s just taking his shots and knocking them down.”
Anthony averaged 20-plus points in each of his first 14 seasons with the Nuggets and New York Knicks, winning the scoring title in 2012-13 with 28.7 points per game for New York. He has scored 50 points four times and topped 40 points 40 times. “I’m still here doing it,” the 37-year-old Anthony said. “I think that’s what I’m honestly excited about. I’m here in Year 19 still doing what I’m able to do. Still passionate about the game. Still passionate about coming to work every day and getting better.”
The last half-decade has seen Anthony hop to a handful of teams, including a nearly year-long hiatus when he was out of the league. The period of upheaval started with a trade to the Oklahoma City Thunder just before the start of the 2017-18 season. “I loved Carmelo,” said Chicago Bulls coach Billy Donovan, who coached Anthony in OKC. “He was great to work with. I think that it was a really, really hard situation for all of us because the trade for him happened the day before training camp.”
