Miami Heat vs NY Knicks by FairPlayBet
This number is far above his regular season average which was only 22.6 points per game. But there are reasons why I think Anthony can cover this line today. Firstly, 22.6 per game was not too much real number since he had injury problems during the season and more important had some issue with former head coach Mike D'Anthoni. Since Carmelo fully recovered and since D'Anthoni left the Knicks' bench, we could see much better games from best player of New York. For example in 12 games of April, Carmelo was even 8 times above this line and his average in those 12 was almost 30 points per game (29.8).
Also it is fact that since Amare Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin were out because of injuries, Carmelo took much more responsibilities. The same I think will be now in play-off. Jeremy Lin wont play at all since his injury was serious, while Stoudemire is back, but after he has played in only last 4 games in April, I doubt that he is fully prepared. So, I expect that almost all in Knicks' basketball will depend on Carmelo Anthony.
