New York Knicks guard Carmelo Anthony scored 27 points in a 110-102 win over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, becoming the second player in league history to record three triple-doubles in a season.
Anthony was 4-for-7 from the field, 2-for 3 from 3-point range, 2 of 4 from the free throw line and 1 of 2 from the foul line as the Knicks (29-7) earned a 98-84 victory.
The Knicks improved to 4-0 in their last six games and are now 1-1 against teams that finished the regular season with winning records.
Anthony scored 25 points and added 16 rebounds and 11 assists, while also scoring 15 points in the second half.
He added nine rebounds and four assists in the third quarter, and he scored 11 points in overtime.
The win also pushed the Knicks’ winning streak to 11 games, the longest of the season.
The Warriors (12-10) had been without point guard Stephen Curry, who suffered a knee injury in Wednesday’s 108-101 win over Miami.
The team is still trying to get back on track after losing Curry for the rest of the month with a broken left kneecap.
Curry will have a second surgery to repair the broken bone, which he sustained in the season opener.
He is expected to be sidelined about a month, though.
Stephen Curry scores 22 points as the Golden States win 102-99 over the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals at Madison Square Garden.
