NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony returned from a two-game hiatus due to injuries and gave the Knicks just what they needed in a game he called a “must win.”
Anthony scored a game-high 25 points on 9-for-14 shooting and dished six assists as the Knicks snapped a three-game losing streak by smacking the downtrodden Detroit Pistons, 113-86, at MSG.
“My legs felt great out there tonight,” Anthony said. “I felt refreshed, just taking these five, six days off that I did. It really helped me out big-time. I could feel me having my explosiveness back.”
