Carmelo Anthony was incredible once again on Monday night. The Knicks' superstar has been playing at an extremely high level all season long, and this game was no exception. Anthony had 44 points, cracking the 40-point mark for the third time in the past four games.
 
Melo hit seven of his 12 shots from downtown and was perfect on all nine of this attempts from the free throw line.He shot 14-for-29 overall and also notched nine rebounds and four assists to go along with a block. It was another fantastic game for Melo, who has had a magnificent year despite the team's struggles.
