Melo Eyes Match Up Against Thunder, Durant

Years ago, back when Kevin Durant was making a name for himself as a prep player in the Washington, D.C. area, Carmelo Anthony probably never thought that one day, he would have a chance to make history against Durant’s team.
Even more so, Anthony probably never thought that a victory over Durant’s team could somehow make the difference between him being viewed as a legitimate player that an NBA team could build a winning culture around.
Yet, here we are.
The Knicks are surging and will ride the club’s 11-game win streak into Oklahoma City on Sunday. A win makes it a cool dozen and legitimizes the Knicks as a team that should be taken seriously come playoff time. It could also legitimize Anthony as being more than the non-winning gunslinger that many in the media hold him out to be.
A loss, though, and the national media will dismiss the streak as merely being born of battering vulnerable competition. The same exact thing will be done to Anthony’s historic scoring performance over the past three games, as well.
