Carmelo Anthony, Marcus Thornton combined to score 104 points without an assist

On Friday night, Carmelo Anthony went nuts in Madison Square Garden, scoring 62 points in a New York Knicks victory (even though Rick Fox wasn’t much of a fan).

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.
