Carmelo Anthony's Scoring Outburst Creates Very Lopsided Graphic

Bleacher Report
Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIJanuary 25, 2014

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is feeling it.

With the Knicks up 101-66 at the end of the third quarter, Anthony had put up an impressive 56 points, scoring 37 in the first half. The TV broadcast decided to put up a graphic comparing Anthony to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

It wasn't close.

Granted, Kidd-Gilchrist didn't post a better field-goal percentage, nor did he put up 30 shots or grab 10 rebounds at that point—Anthony was almost outscoring the entire Charlotte Bobcats team.

Melo was benched early, but still set a Knicks record with 62 points on 23-of-35 shooting.
