Carmelo Anthony Returns and Scores 34 in Knicks' Win

The New York Knicks kept rolling right along as Carmelo Anthony re-joined the lineup last night.  Anthony had missed the last two games due to a lacerated finger he suffered last week.  The laceration required five stitches and he missed games on Thursday and Saturday.  Last night, though, he was back to his old self.

Anthony scored 34 points, had six rebounds, and had two steals in the game.  The Knicks went on to win the game 112-106.  They improved to 15-5 on the season, and they have the best record in the Eastern Conference.

Anthony has been a big part of New York's success so far this season.  He is averaging 26.8 points per game and 6.7 rebounds per game.  His PER is 24.07.  Anthony has been relatively healthy all season long as well.  The finger injury is the first thing to keep him sidelined this year.  His health will be important to the Knicks' continued success.

New York will take on the Brooklyn Nets tomorrow in Brooklyn.  Both teams are doing well this season, so this should be an exciting matchup.
