Melo Scores 22 in the 1st Half, Gets Shut Down By LeBron in the 2nd
Carmelo Anthony came out strong with 22 first half points but only scored 4 in the 2nd half of the Knicks loss to the Cavs on Friday night.
LeBron gets most of the credit for the 2nd half shutdown and also finished with a game-high 31 points.
“Certain games are going to predict itself and you’ve got to be able to defend at a high level on the defensive end and then make timely shots, and we did that,” James said.
