What Happened: Sets career high 50 points against New York Knicks
Long before any trade talks began, New Yorkers were quite familiar with Carmelo. Their uptempo play suited his capabilities perfectly and he was willing to show anyone who dared step in front of him. Melo lit up the Knicks for a career high 50 points en route to a Denver victory, but Chauncey Billups would share the glory as they became just the third pair of teammates in league history to score 50 and 30 points together. Those New Yorkers who missed it will have plenty of opportunities to see history repeat itself. And they’ll probably be much happier with the results.
