After coming up on the receiving end of an absolutely vicious rejection by Roy Hibbert during the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals, Carmelo Anthony has learned a few things about going up strong to the basket. For one, use both hands! Last night, Anthony put that particular lesson in action, but the Knicks star player still ended up getting his dunk attempt swatted away. This time, the block came from the right hand of rookie Victor Oladipo, who audibly stunned everyone from the MSG crowd to the announcer, Mike Breen.
However, that block was a minor blip on an overall great night by Melo (20 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists) and the rest of the Knicks, who came away with a 121-83 victory over the Magic.
