Yes, the New York Knicks are riding a five-game winning streak with an impressive win over Miami last weekend. And yes, they managed to get past the Phoenix Suns in overtime, 98-96 Monday night at the Garden. But when MSG Network’s Tina Cervasio reminded CARMELO ANTHONY in the postgame interview that his club has another game to play Tuesday night, Melo gave the only answer he could muster…
Lol! Leading the Knicks with 29 points and 16 rebounds against the Suns, Anthony has been such a workhorse during the Knicks recent resurgence (Melo is averaging 25.8 ppg and 8.8 rpg during the win streak) that his poop-laced slip of the tongue is clearly understandable.
The games seemingly never end in the NBA. No time to rest on your laurels. Big Cat Al Jefferson and the ever elusive Kemba Walker await Melo and the Knicks in Charlotte.
