Yesterday, Carmelo Anthony received recognition as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Month for his record-breaking play in January.

Leading the team to its first winning month of the season (10-6), Anthony averaged 28.7 points, 9 rebounds and 3.4 assists. In addition, Anthony shot 45% from the field and 49% from three-point range.

Anthony’s best performance came on January 24 at Madison Square Garden when he scored 62 points against the Bobcats, breaking Bernard King’s previous franchise record.

Melo’s stellar play lead the Knicks to a four-game win streak to close out the month and his seventh All-Star game selection.
