A few hours later across the country, Sacramento Kings gunner Marcus Thornton did the same. And while he didn’t score 62, he did put up 42 and shared a common factor with the aforementioned Melo.
Neither had a single assist. That’s right. Through almost ninety minutes of action, Anthony and Thornton combined to score 104 points and both had a zero in the assist column.
Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony and Kings’ Marcus Thornton combined to score 104 points tonight without having a single assist between them.
That’s a pretty absurd number. Of course, that doesn’t mean Thornton and Anthony didn’t try to get an assist, but between their hot shooting and fellow players inability to knock down a basket, they were both left with a donut hole in the dimes department.
Unfortunitly for Sacramento, Thornton’s effort wasn’t enough as the Kings dropped a heartbreaker in overtime to the Indiana Pacers.
