Knicks Journal :
Carmelo Anthony continued to cement his legacy as the holiday hero, propelling the Knicks to a stunning 100-99 victory over the Bulls on Easter Sunday.In what was arguably Anthony's greatest performance as a Knick to date, the Brooklyn native's season-high 43 points proved he is ready for the challenge of having to carry the team on his own, without the likes of Amar'e Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin.This is why the Knicks reeled Anthony in to the Big Apple. He is paid the big bucks not only because of the bevy of "I Do This" moments he has also produced, but for the many the Knicks expect to continue see out of him in the future.By beating the Bulls (the NBA's top team) in thrilling fashion, the Knicks moved up to the seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings. Not only does this, ironically enough, move them away from a firs-round playoff matchup with Chicago, but if the season ended today, yesterday's win would net the Knicks a classic playoff serie...

The Knicks point guard speaking before yesterday's 100-99 overtime win over the Chicago Bulls— and six days after surgery for a torn left meniscus— said he does not want to rush back.
The performance Carmelo Anthony put on at Madison Square Garden today was the type that made you laugh at anybody who regretted giving up Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari and the immortal Timofey Mozgov.

On February 6, the shorthanded New York Knicks topped the Utah Jazz at home. The team’s two best players were inactive, dealing with various issues ranging from personal to health.
