Chandler: Carmelo Anthony Tops MVP Race
Tyson Chandler called (Carmelo) Anthony an MVP candidate before the game and afterward said, “He should be at the top of the race right now. We’re playing the best basketball, and he’s playing all over the floor on both ends.’’
The Knicks moved to 8-1 for the third time in their franchise history. The two other times they started 8-1 were their two championship seasons — 1969-70 and 1972-73.
