Anthony helps Knicks beat Bulls 100-91

The New York Knicks are averaging 104.6 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 108.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting. They tried to deal him before the trade deadline. The Knicks jumped out to a 29-24 lead in the first quarter followed by a 14-point advantage at the break. With 36.4 minutes per game in 2002-03, he not only led the team in playing time, but he was clearly the overall leader of that team in general.

Bulls: Anthony Morrow scored 15 points, and Robin Lopez had 11. "You're sure? Me? I'm starting?'" Ndour said. Ndour, who has a team option for next season, may start again as Porzingis "rests" a sore back. It all depends on what Knicks president Phil Jackson is able to do this summer with Anthony, a high draft pick and in free agency. Derrick Rose is out for the season (knee). For several years now, Carmelo Anthony has been tasked to do the same but also met the same fate of the other franchise players before him. "He's made great strides and he's heading that way", Hornacek said. "These last couple of games is something that I'll go out there and play when I'm out there I'll play hard and see what happens and enjoy it again".

These could be the last five games of Carmelo Anthony's career with the Knicks, but before any trade is negotiated he expects a tell-all exit meeting with Phil Jackson. They are playing loosely and without pressure, which has seemed to improve their performance. "I had joy. I had fun out there and I enjoyed myself playing, not only for the team but playing for and just for her to see me out there playing it was wonderful".

Zika birth defects found in 1 in 10 infected U.S. pregnant women
Only 25 percent of infants from pregnancies with possible recent Zika infection reported receiving postnatal neuroimaging. In most cases, Zika was acquired during travel overseas to an area with active transmission of the mosquito-borne virus.

"They (Knicks) did a good job of scrambling, helping each other out", Hornacek said.

"Can you say that's next year or the year after (that Porzingis is ready to be the go-to guy)?" Anthony gives off the impression he's done caring about the team's future, providing many hints he understands his time with the Knicks is over. So the candidates for a landing spot are limited to the ones that Anthony will agree to and then there is a matter of matching the contract if those teams can't absorb his salary - more than $26 million next year. One source near the process said had Jackson approached Anthony directly and explained the change in focus, Anthony might have been more receptive in January and February.

The Knicks were without Kristaps Porzingis, along with former Bulls Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, but they still dominated thanks to a much stronger effort overall.
