Carmelo Anthony Passes Tim Duncan for 14th on NBA’s All-Time Scoring List
Here’s a look at the moment he continued of the two-time MVP on the scoring charts:
Anthony ended up the video game with 18 points, five rebounds, one help and one block in 24 minutes off the bench. He’s balancing 13.3 points through four looks throughout the 2020-21 project and might find himself on the fringe of the leading 10 on the scoring list by season’s end.
The 36-year-old New York City native was the long time leading scoring alternative for the Denver Nuggets (2003-11) and New York City Knicks (2011-17), and he won a scoring title with the Knicks in 2012-13.
He had a hard time in his first few stops as a complementary offensive option with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Firecrackers in current years, but he’s found a convenience zone as the 3rd choice behind Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum in Portland, a role he filled perfectly Friday night.
” I had to swallow that pill. I needed to be actually truthful and transparent with the group and organization,” Anthony informed reporters in December. “And also with Dame and CJ. We had multiple discussions leading up to me returning here. Those discussions were really sincere from both sides.”
Anthony signed an one-year, $2.6 million agreement with the Blazers in November, one year after at first signing up with the franchise.
Portland is back in action Sunday for a rematch with Golden State as the 10-time All-Star works to continue climbing the scoring list. Tip at the Chase Center is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET on NBA TELEVISION.
