In a season full of memorable moments for Carmelo Anthony, he can create another Monday. Anthony will be in the spotlight in the New York Knicks' annual Martin Luther King Day home game, with the rival Brooklyn Nets trying to move closer in the Atlantic Division race. The Knicks star has scored at least 20 points in 25 straight games, the longest such streak of his career.
