(Per Knicks Blog - ESPN - New York)

"Carmelo Anthony started his week with back-to-back 39 point, 10 rebound performances to help the Knicks snap a six game losing streak."

"He ended it with a 25-point, five-rebound, six assist night against Cleveland on Sunday to help Knicks clinch their first playoff berth since 2004."

"On Monday the NBA recognized Anthony's spectacular seven-day-stretch by naming him Eastern Conference Player of the Week."

"We have a team now where we want to build on it and be better and compete at a higher level every year" said anything, who averaged a league-best 34.3 points per game last week on 50% shooting.

"The Knicks have gone 10-12 since Anthony's debut. The former Nuggers star has averaged 26.2 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists in his brief Knicks tenure."

Nice read. Just really refreshing to see Melo peaking @ the perfect time heading into the playoffs. We game up a lot to land Melo & it's just a good feeling to see him become a team leader who's playing winning ball
