Following Carmelo Anthony's Easter Sunday heroics against the Bulls, there was no doubt that Chicago was going to come out all guns blazing on Tuesday night, ready to avenge the astonishing loss.The Knicks caught a break with the news that Derrick Rose would be sitting out the game with an injury. The league M.V.P. would not be available to return the favor to Anthony and force his team to suffer a loss.Instead, it would be NBA champion and three-time All-Star Richard Hamilton who turned back the clock against the Knicks to help the Bulls pull away with a 98-86 victory. The 34 year old scored double-digit points in the third quarter, on his way to pouring in a team-leading 20 points in the contest.

Carmelo Anthony looked especially dapper before Tuesday night’s Knicks game (pic)

Looking good, Carmelo Anthony. Looking good. It takes considerable fashion gravitas to pull of the multi-buttoned suit coat over the buttoned cardigan look without it appearing, well, too button-ey. Throw in the bow tie and Knicks-colored headphones and more often than not one would have the makings of an overly busy ensemble. But we’re talking [...]

Carmelo Anthony Re-Injures Hand; Earns Technical

I have mentioned over the past few days how VITAL the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks game would be on Wednesday. New York started off the f first quarter on FIRE shooting 82% from the field and had a 10-point lead, but that soon would end as the Milwaukee Bucks would catch a spark. [...]

New York Knicks: Finding A Way In Big Spots

The New York Knicks can be infuriating to watch at times. This season has been a bizarre roller coaster of about five different teams, all of which are deeply flawed but unquestionably talented. The current version is entirely too reliant on Carmelo Anthony on the offensive end and is still prone to mind numbing lapses on defense despite having two candidates for first team All...

The Starting Lineup: Rose Returns, But Melo Steals The Show

Carmelo Anthony spoiled the return of Derrick Rose by scoring 43 points, including a pair of deep threes that tied/won the game.   I suppose you could argue that Rose (29 PTS, 8-26 FG, 9-12 FT) spoiled his own return by missing a pair of free throws that would’ve put the Knicks to bed, but that would take away from Carmelo’s ridiculousness.  Here are all 43 of his points–skip...
