Carmelo Anthony’s streak of 20-point games continues…
The 28-year-old half-Puerto Rican NBA All-Star forward for the New York Knicks scored a game-high 28 points to help his team snap an 11-game losing streak in Boston with an 89-86 victory over the Celtics on Thursday night.
Anthony scored at least 20 points for the 27th straight game, third most in franchise history behind Richie Guerin‘s 29 and Patrick Ewing‘s 28.
“I’m just trying to block everything out and do what I have to do to win the game,” said Anthony, who also grabbed a team-high nine rebounds. “This whole night was satisfying. To win in this building was a long time coming.”
