When: February 7, 2011
What Happened: Ties career high with another 50 points v. Houston Rockets
2011 was something of a lost year for Carmelo, as he exhibited some of his best moves maneuvering through the media. Everyone knew that Melo wanted to be traded and most were sure where he wanted to go. But he spent the season denying any and all reports of his departure. He was still a Denver Nugget and intended to play the good soldier. In order to prove it, just two weeks before the trade deadline, he declared war on the Houston Rockets. Making almost every shot, from nearly every angle, Anthony didn’t limit himself to just scoring, grabbing 11 rebounds in the game. Unfortunately, his 50 points weren’t enough for the win, but hopefully his last great performance as a Nugget was enough for Denver’s fans.
