You know the old saying: If you can’t beat him…put a hand on his head?

That’s what Carmelo Anthony tried to do when his New York Knicks hosted Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors on Sunday night.

While the reigning MVP danced with the rock, Anthony deliberately kept a hand on his forehead. Melo was called for a foul, so the ensuing ridiculous shot from Steph didn’t count.

The Warriors went on to win, 116-95.

After the game, Curry was spotted with a cut on his head. He said it was from "great defense," per ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk:

Anthony offered his own explanation, too, per ESPN's Ian Begley:
