Anthony stars in Knicks’ back-to-back wins

Carmelo Anthony scored 40 points in the Knicks’ win at Atlanta on Wednesday, one night after he scored 50 points in a victory at Miami.  Anthony became only the second NBA player in the last 25 years to score 40 or more points in road wins played on consecutive days.  Kobe Bryant did it in March 2007.

The only other Knicks player to score 40 or more points on consecutive days—whether at home or on the road, in wins or in losses—was Bernard King, who did it twice in 1984.
