Carmelo Anthony has 18 first quarter points (GIF)


It hasn’t been a perfect quarter for New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. He easily bit on a weak pump fake before getting called for a charge on the opposite end of the court, but he has redeemed himself with his offensive output.

Anthony finished the first-quarter against the Indiana Pacers with an impressive 18 points, which he capped off with a buzzer beating shot from three-point range.

The Pacers better step up their defensive efforts for the remaining three quarters, or Anthony’s point total will continue to rise and they could find themselves falling behind quickly.
