Carmelo Anthony followed up his record-breaking performance with a 35-point, five-assist night against the Lakers. Anthony is clearly in one of those rarified zones where his confidence and ability are at their absolute peaks.
 
With this great offensive power comes great responsibility and Melo is elevating not only his individual game but that of his teammates as well. Carmelo is using the extra attention he's getting from defenses to create plays for the other Knick shooters on the floor and they're knocking down their open looks.
