Every move the Knicks make is done with the idea of keeping Carmelo Anthony happy and, above all else, keeping him in New York.
Carmelo Anthony hasn't had much to smile about lately, and he brought some of the frustration from the Knicks' season with him here. But it didn't affect him Sunday night.
Nineteen of the Knicks’ final 30 regular-season games are away from Madison Square Garden. Many see this as a death sentence for the team. But a look at the remaining regular-season schedule shows that some time away from Madison Square Garden may not be the worst thing in the world for New York (20-32). For one, the Knicks are 12-18 at home and 8-14 on the road. So they’re playing .400 ball no matter where the game is being played. And the Garden hasn’t exactly been a safe haven for Mike Woodson and the Knicks.
Late last week, Carmelo Anthony said it would be tough to enjoy the All-Star break because of the New York Knicks’ struggles. But it sure looked like he was having a good time on Sunday night. Anthony knocked down an All-Star record eight 3-pointers to help the Eastern Conference to a 163-155 win. The Knicks star finished with a All-Star career-high 30 points on 10-for-18 shooting. He also had five rebounds and two assists. The previous record for 3-pointers in a single game was six, held by Mark Price, LeBron James and Anthony.
