Anthony finished with 27 points (9-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven boards, and one assist in 40 minutes of a 131-122 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday.
Anthony came out firing like a hungry rookie desperate to prove himself in game five, and the seasoned vet did his best to fill in with his team missing superstar Damian Lillard (knee) in the decisive game five. While his effort, which included a series high in points, helped keep the game close late in the fourth quarter, ultimately the Trail Blazers ran out of steam and the Lakers pulled away. The loss ends Portland's season.
Anthony finished Monday's Game 4 loss to the Lakers with 16 points (6-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and two rebounds.
It was a frustrating night for Anthony, who made only one of his six attempts from deep and was visibly upset with the referees on a number of occasions. The veteran is still capable of a hot night from the field -- as evidenced by his strong showings during seeding play -- but Anthony has been overmatched by the Lakers' frontcourt through four games.
Anthony delivered 20 points (9-20 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six rebounds, four steals, two assists and a block in 42 minutes during Saturday's 116-108 Game 3 loss against the Lakers.
Anthony struggled badly in Game 2 with a two-point effort, but he bounced back in Game 3 and was one of Portland's biggest offensive threats despite the loss. Anthony tends to take a backseat offensively to both Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, but this 20-point effort should boost his confidence. Entering the postseason, Anthony had scored 20 or more points in four of his last five appearances.
Anthony only mustered two points (1-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one assist while turning the ball over three times in 27 minutes during Thursday's 111-88 Game 2 loss against the Lakers.
Anthony scored 11 points in Game 1, but he was a non-factor in Game 2. The veteran forward scored 20 or more points in four of Portland's final five games before the playoffs, but he is averaging just 6.5 points on 23.5 percent shooting after the first two games of the series against the Lakers. Portland needs him to improve for Saturday's Game 3, especially if Damian Lillard (finger) is not at full strength.
Anthony provided 11 points (3-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 37 minutes in Tuesday's 100-93 win over the Lakers in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
Anthony recorded his double-double despite a lukewarm shooting performance and was ultimately effective in the paint as a rebounder. It was only the eighth time that Anthony recorded double-digit boards this season. He will usually only put up big fantasy numbers if his shot is on point.
Anthony accumulated 21 points (5-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 10-10 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 38 minutes during Saturday's 126-122 win over the Grizzlies.
Anthony took smaller defenders into the post and repeatedly drew fouls, sinking all 10 of his free-throw attempts. Moreover, with the game hanging in the balance, he drained a three-pointer to put the Trail Blazers up by six with 21.0 seconds remaining. He'll have his work cut out for him defensively in the team's first round matchup versus the Lakers, but Anthony is almost certainly going to continue logging fairly heavy minutes.
Anthony scored 26 points (10-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds, two assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 134-131 win over the Mavericks.
The 36-year-old had his most productive game to date in the bubble, but Anthony hasn't been slacking. He's scored at least 20 points in three straight games and four of seven overall since play resumed. With CJ McCollum playing through a back injury, Anthony has stepped up as an effective sidekick for Damian Lillard as the Blazers try to secure a spot in the playoffs.
Anthony recorded 21 points (8-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 122-117 loss to the Clippers.
Anthony had a strong game, but it wasn't enough to secure the victory over the Clippers. It was his second 20-point performance of the bubble and his 16th 20-point performance of the campaign.
Anthony totaled 15 points (5-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 110-102 defeat of the Rockets.
Anthony notched his fifth double-double of the season in the victory. However, it was his three-pointer with under a minute remaining that would help Portland finally pull away for the win. On the year, the 36-year-old is averaging 15.3 points per game along with 6.3 rebounds.
Anthony contributed 21 points (7-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 140-135 overtime win against the Grizzlies.
Anthony committed five turnovers and five fouls but was absurdly efficient from the field, finishing with over twice as many points as field-goal attempts. Though Anthony is essentially the fourth option offensively, behind the likes of Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic, he is clearly capable of filling it up on any given night. Expecting Anthony to maintain this level of efficiency is a recipe for disappointment. However, the fact that he earned so many minutes (albeit in an overtime game) bodes well for his potential fantasy value going forward.
Anthony finished with eight points (3-9 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds in Thursday's scrimmage against the Pacers.
The slimmed-down Anthony started at small forward as the Blazers went with Jusuf Nurkic at center and Zach Collins at power forward. Anthony hit three field goals early on and also added an assist and two steals.
Anthony registered 21 points (9-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 121-105 win over the Suns.
Anthony was coming off two straight single-digit scoring performances, but he bounced back nicely here and showed he is still capable of lighting up the scoreboard on any given night. Despite two sub-par outings, Anthony has looked good during the current month since he's averaging 14.2 points while shooting 49.1 percent from the field and 53.8 percent from three-point range in five March outings.
Anthony finished with seven points (3-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 34 minutes during Friday's 127-117 loss to the Suns.
Coming off an excellent 25-point outburst, Anthony regressed in a big way Friday. The effort was the seventh of Anthony's season with double-digit field-goal attempts with single-digit points -- tied for the ninth-most such performances this season. He'll look to bounce back Saturday while facing off against the Kings, who are in the race for the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoff picture along with the Trail Blazers.
Anthony posted 25 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 3pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, two steals and one assist across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 125-104 win over the Wizards.
Wednesday was one of Anthony's better all-around performances of the season, and it came at an important time as the Blazers scrap and claw for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. The effort was one of Anthony's five 25-point outings this season, and of those, Wednesday's required the fewest shot attempts. Over the past seven games, he's averaging 17.9 points on 12.9 shots, plus 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 33.5 minutes.
Anthony posted 10 points (5-9 FG), eight rebounds and two assists across 26 minutes during Monday's 130-107 win over the Magic.
Anthony saw his six-game streak of at least 30 minutes come to an end, but it was the result of a blowout victory. He shot the ball well, and it was his fourth consecutive game with exactly five made field goals. Over the past 10 games, he's averaging 14.3 points on 13.2 shots, plus 6.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 33.6 minutes.
Anthony had 14 points (5-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 118-106 loss to the Celtics.
Anthony was coming off arguably his best performance of the season but was unable to keep the momentum going. He managed to score in double digits once again, but the efficiency was well down. With Damian Lillard (groin) still in street clothes, Anthony basically has a green light to fire away at will. In the short term, he is fine to have on a 12-team roster as long as you aren't concerned with the inconsistent shooting.
Anthony finished with 32 points (11-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four boards and one assist in 37 minutes Sunday in Portland's 107-104 win over Detroit.
Anthony looked like his old self, establishing a new season high in points while proving to be an effective second option to C.J. McCollum. The veteran has stepped up his game in the last two contests with Damian Lillard (groin) sitting out and should again benefit from elevated usage Tuesday versus Boston, as the All-Star point guard is expected to remain out for that contest.
Anthony accounted for 20 points (6-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes during Friday's 128-115 loss against the Pelicans.
Anthony has reached the 20-point plateau twice in eight February contests, but he has been inconsistent for the most part. He has averaged 12.5 points while shooting 33.6 percent from the field during that eight-game span, although he could experience a slight uptick in his numbers moving forward while Damian Lillard remains out due to a groin injury.
Anthony accumulated five points (1-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 111-104 loss to the Grizzlies.
Anthony struggled badly from the field but finished with a season high in rebounding, this after hauling in just one board in 26 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans. He'll now have over a week to rest and recover in advance of next Friday's rematch versus New Orleans.
Anthony finished with 15 points (6-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes Sunday in the Trail Blazers' 115-109 win over the Heat.
Anthony supplied his typical volume in terms of points, three-pointers and rebounds, but as per usual, he wasn't overly efficient from the field and offered little else in terms of counting stats. He's not a must-roster player for fantasy managers in good shape in points and triples, but he'll have value in 12-team leagues for those looking to make up ground in the two categories.
