VIDEO: Carmelo Anthony cooks the Pelicans in the fourth

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Carmelo Anthony decided he'd had enough. The Knicks are at the center of trade rumors, coach firing talk, and his impending free agency. After a miserable loss to the Grizzlies Tuesday, the Knicks responded in New Orleans with a win, and Melo dropped 42, including 13 in the fourth.

The Pelicans took the lead briefly late, and then after Anthony Davis blocked him at the rim, Melo went to work.

I especially like how he passed up the pull-up three for a closer, better shot that was more open. Just great work from Anthony who was awesome all night long.

Here's his shot chart from NBA.com:
