Carmelo Hitting the Boards

Melo recorded his second consecutive double-double with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Anthony has really stepped up on the glass with Tyson Chandler out with injury. He has pulled down more than 10 boards in four of his last five games.

Twenty-five percent of Carmelo's rebounds against the Wizards were on the offensive end. Melo has been making a concerted effort to follow his own shots and he's been able to either get an easy layup or get fouled off his own rebounds. It's good to see Carmelo leading by example during this tough stretch and his rebounding effort should be contagious in the next few games.
