Everybody may have been focused on Phoenix and the football game there Sunday, but there was a matinée in New York City — the Lakers were in town to take on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. It was a game that generated so much interest ESPN dropped its broadcast a week ago in favor or showing footage from Chris Paul’s celebrity bowling event.
Carmelo Anthony still put on a show.
He skied for the dunk above and put up 31 in an easy Knicks win 92-80 (it wasn’t that close, the Lakers closed the game on an 11-2 run). Carmelo had it going.
