Anthony Passes Durant in Scoring Race
Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony passed three-time scoring champ Kevin Durant in this season’s scoring race.
Anthony finished with 36 points and now has a 28.44 scoring average. Durant finished with 27 points and is averaging 28.35 points. Durant would have retained the lead had he scored 34 points Sunday.
“I try not to think about that,” Anthony said when informed he was the new scoring leader. “I just go out there and play ball.”
