“There’s no way that’s going in,” Carmelo said when Trey Burke attempted a shot at the final buzzer. “Let’s just get the rebound and go to overtime.”
“It looked good as soon as it left my hand,” Burke said of the shot which turned out to be a game-winner.
“I just couldn’t believe it,” Anthony said. “I had to smile that one off.”
For most of the game, Anthony did have something to smile about. He had a season-high 46 points and the last 3 came on a 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds left to tie the game. That 3 also gave him 17 points in the final quarter.
But then Trey Burke happened.
“Trey is the guy that’s been known for hitting big shots,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. “I think he’s one of those guys that gets excited when he gets the ball, and Gordon’s been like that, too.”
Burke finished with 13 points and 8 assists and helped keep the Knicks losing streak (7) alive.
