(NEW YORK) — Carmelo Anthony followed his Madison Square Garden 62-point game on Friday night with 35 points in the Knicks (17-27) 110-103 win over the Los Angeles Lakers (16-29) on Sunday.
Anthony got some help from his teammates with four scoring at least 13.
“I don’t think they just wanted to watch me out there playing offensively,” Anthony said. “They wanted to be a part of it and they did.”
Pau Gasol scored 20 points in the loss and the Lakers have now dropped four straight games.
“Can we turn it around? I think we will,” Gasol said. “If we stick together, continue to work hard and get a couple of bodies back that are key, we can be a lot better and we can get much better results.”
Raymond Felton scored a season-high 20 points and rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. added 18.
“Last year we had five guys that averaged in double figures and I’ve always wanted a team where you just didn’t know where it was going to come from,” Knicks coach Mike Woodson said of Anthony’s follow-up performance. “And we know Melo’s going to get his, but we need everybody to be a part of the offense and touch the ball and feel good about themselves.”
