Maybe it’s a good thing rookie sensation Anthony Davis didn’t try to play on a bum left ankle Tuesday night. He might have been spared the embarrassment of getting torched by Carmelo Anthony in their power-forward matchup.
Anthony dominated in the low post last night, scorching through the Big Easy for 29 points in 28 minutes as the Knicks routed the young Hornets, 102-80 at New Orleans Arena.
Anthony posted a masterpiece 19-point first quarter, outscoring New Orleans by himself. He finished 12-of-22 from the field, buried two 3-pointers and hit from everywhere in the French Quarter.
