Although this nasty crossover and jumper by Carmelo Anthony wasn’t on China’s Guo Ailun, who crossed and hit a 3 on Melo the last time the two teams “competed,” I’m still calling it a payback play.
But that play was just an appetizer for what Melo did to China in the 3rd quarter, when he heated up and cooked Zhou Qi and a couple of others defenders for 16 points in the quarter.
Melo finished the game with 20 points and 5 boards in just 14 minutes of the USA’s 107-57 beatdown on China.
