Phil Jackson said this at ESPNNewYork about Carmelo Anthony in the triangle:
“There’ll be plenty of iso opportunities for Melo, and in the triangle it’ll be very difficult for defenses to double-team him.”
There was one with the game on the line Wednesday night when the Knicks took on the Wizards. The game was tied 100-100 and after trying to run a set they just gave ‘Melo the ball and left side and let him go to work. It was one-on-one, no help, no one game in support.
He nailed a contested jumper. The Knicks went on to win 103-100.
Anthony had 30 on the night.
