Carmelo Anthony had scored 33 points leading up to the final Knicks possession of Friday night’s game against the Charlotte Hornets. Melo and the Knicks were tied up with the Bees. That is, until Melo lifted up against Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to hit what would amount to be the game-winning jumper.
Melo finished with 35 points and 14 rebounds in 41 minutes. Even with all those minutes on his legs, he still had enough in the tank to help the Knicks pick up their third straight win.
