Anthony missed his first two field goal attempts — then hit eight straight, including four 3-pointers _ before his next miss.

After his first 3-pointer, he trotted over to Washington owner Ted Leonsis, who was seated near his team’s bench, and the two bumped fists.

The game was physical, featuring 62 fouls and three technicals.
