Carmelo Anthony, SF, New York Knicks: Another one of yesterday’s big matchups consisted of two historic but bad teams in the Lakers and Knicks. New York would eventually come out on top of a pretty close game 110-103, with Anthony following his record-breaking performance with a 35-point, four-rebound, five-assist outing.
The Knicks have won two straight, but still have a lot of work to do at 17-27. They have three games left on their current home-stand, starting tomorrow against the Celtics.

Anthony Davis, PF, New Orleans Pelicans: Davis was on fire yesterday, continuing a string of strong play. He posted 22 points and 19 rebounds, doubling up in the Pelicans’ 100-92 win over Orlando. Davis also notched an incredible seven blocks, and has posted double-doubles in three of his last five outings.
That’s three wins in the last four games for the Pelicans, who are currently 18-25. Their two-game road trip starts tomorrow in Cleveland.

Dirk Nowitzki, PF, Dallas Mavericks: Nowitzki had a big day himself, posting 28 points against the Pistons. He also notched nine rebounds and four assists in the 116-106 victory. It was Nowitzki’s highest points total since dropping 40 on New Orleans on Janary 11.
The Mavs are 2-2 in their last four games for a record of 26-20 on the season. Their four-game home-stand continues against the Rockets on Wednesday.
