Carmelo Anthony has a heavy burden on his shoulders as the Knicks primary scorer. However, he's not showing it in the first two games of this series. As the series heads to Boston, Anthony is averaging 35 points a game, after respective outings of 36 and 34. Anthony led the charge in the second half, by connecting on five of his six field goal attempts for 13 points. Nineteen of Anthony's 34 came in the second half which was nearly enough to eclipse Boston's entire team output for the half.
Melo played 40 minutes tonight, had a plus/minus of +22, was 10-11 from the free throw line, and dropped 34 points. #knickstape
