When: February 18, 2010
What Happened: 40 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 game winner v. Cleveland Cavs
Since their much heralded arrival together in 2004, LeBron James and Carmelo have taken drastically different paths. Bron’s unmatched skillset carried an undermanned Cavs team to new heights-and The Finals-in a depleted Eastern Conference, while Melo struggled to escape the Wild Wild West. But on those rare occasions when they match up against each other, Melo has always been eager to prove his worth. On this night in 2010, he was worth plenty. James was as great as ever, notching a 40 point triple double, however Melo hung 40 of his own on The King, including the game winner with just seconds remaining.
