Carmelo Anthony dropped 31 points on his former team to go with three rebounds, two assists, a steal, and a block as the Knicks defeated the Nuggets 117-90.
Despite sitting out the fourth quarter, Anthony was still able to score 31 points on 12-21 shooting and 4-9 from behind the arc. He continues to play on a different planet and is making a strong case for MVP consideration. Antony has shown no signs of slowing down although playing a lot of his time in the post.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
