It was all good in the opening quarter of the Knicks and Mavs game. So good that when Melo missed a dunk the entire Knicks bench erupted in laughter and Tim Hardaway Jr did his best Kent Bazemore watching Blake Griffin shoot a 3 impersonation.
Carmelo Anthony didn’t miss much else in the opening minutes against Dallas. He scored 15 of his 19 in the first quarter that included a 12-0 run and ended with the Knicks up 29-17. It seemed like every Knick was feeling good in that game because Melo was 1 of 5 that scored in double figures.

Well, Beno only made 2 of 6 shots but did have 8 assists and Amare made less than half of his shots but he had 7 boards and 1 big laugh at Melo’s dunk miss so I’ll agree with Rick.
