Carmelo Anthony Drops 50 Points Against Injured Heat Squad

Carmelo Anthony went off for 50 points against an injured Miami Heat team Tuesday night, matching his career high in points.

Anthony went 18-26 from the field while committing zero turnovers, becoming the first player to score 50 points without committing a turnover in five years. Anthony’s performance helped the Knicks earn their ninth straight win as they cruised to a comfortable 102-90 victory.

Being that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were both out with injuries, a lot of people will put an asterisk next to this performance, but it was still fun to watch.

Here’s Anthony’s postgame interview on his stellar performance.
