Carmelo Anthony had just sunk the typing three-pointer, bringing his point total to a robust 36 points worthy of the star that Anthony considers himself to be. It looked like he had done what he needed to in order to give his New York Knicks a chance for an overtime win on the road against the Milwaukee Bucks.
All the Knicks had to do was survive a shot in the closing seconds from the Bucks. With no timeouts remaining, the home team did not run anything exotic. Brandon Knight pretty much held the ball, walked up to the three-point line, and shot over Raymond Felton.
On this night, that strategy worked just fine.
With the 101-98 win, the Bucks move to a dreary 9-39 on the season. The Knicks are now 19-29.
