Carmelo Anthony Gets Drilled on Screen from Kendrick Perkins

It's safe to say that Carmelo Anthony didn't have the best day against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Trying to guard Kevin Durant, Melo didn't see 6'10'', 270-pound Kendrick Perkins setting a screen to free up KD. As soon as the screen was set, Anthony had no idea he was there and got drilled by Perkins. You can see a GIF of the play below.

Here's the full video of the play.

That wasn't the only thing to go wrong for Melo. He finished with just 15 points on 5-of-19 shooting while his counterpart Durant went off for 41 points. The New York Knicks ended up losing 112-100.
