BASKETBALL — 20 December 2012

Carmelo Anthony made his return to the New York Knicks line-up last night as they faced their rivals across the bridge, the Brooklyn Nets.

Anthony had missed two games with a sprained left ankle. You wouldn’t have known that last night however; Anthony moved just fine and also shot well.

Following the game, Anthony spoke to reporters and said:

At the end of the day, these are statement games, these are big games, divisional games. They’re right across the bridge, so these games definitely mean a lot.”


The Knicks beat the Nets 100-86 in their third meeting of the season. J.R. Smith contributed 19 points and Tyson Chandler 16 and 12 rebounds.

Following the game, Chandler said:

I just wanted to close the game. I wanted to make a statement. Tonight was a big game for us, a game in our division, an opportunity to gain a full game as far as the lead goes, and we have to make statements like that.”
