Brooklyn Nets 86 Final Recap | Box Score 100 New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, SF 36 MIN | 12-22 FG | 3-3 FT | 3 REB | 1 AST | 31 PTS | +18 Happy Chrimbus, everybody! What did Winter Man leave you under the Chrimbus Bush? Well, for me, it was a healthy, net-splashing Melo. It’s exactly what I wanted. For all of the hullabaloo about the “New Melo”, there are really only two substantial changes to his game.
