Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points with seven rebounds, two assist and one steal in a loss to the Hawks.
He was very efficient this game, making 10-of-16 shots that included two 3-pointers. The game actually came down to the final shot but the Knicks couldn’t capitalize on multiple chances. Trade rumours have been swirling around Anthony and losing certainly doesn’t help anything. The Knicks have looked bad and it seems as though Melo is actually giving it some though on whether or not his time in New York is coming to an end. Derrick Rose also put up 18 points, four rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one block in the loss. With Kristaps Porzingis sidelined for this one, Rose and Anthony did most of the heavy lifting but to no avail.
