NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — No dice for Melo.
Carmelo Anthony will miss the New York Knicks’ game against Oklahoma City with a sprained left ankle, unable to take part in a Christmas Day showdown with Kevin Durant.
It’s the first game this season missed for Anthony, who averages 26.3 points, second to Durant’s 28.1. Anthony edged him to win last season’s scoring title.
The Knicks did have Kenyon Martin, who has missed the last five games with a strained abdominal muscle.
