MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Down 11 in the fourth quarter against a team he felt the New York Knicks should beat, Carmelo Anthony didn’t see another disappointing loss coming. He saw an opportunity, and that’s exactly what he told Raymond Felton.
”I told Raymond, ‘I’m going to try to go get it,”’ Anthony said. Once he made up his mind, the Minnesota Timberwolves were powerless to stop him.
Anthony had 36 points and nine rebounds, scoring 12 points down the stretch to rally the Knicks to a 100-94 victory on Friday night.
