[Video] Carmelo Anthony Becomes Team USA’s All-Time Leading Scorer in Win Over Australia


Carmelo Anthony etched his name in Olympic history by becoming international basketball’s all-time leading scorer ¬†for a 98-88 win over Australia yesterday. Team USA was down at halftime but rallied behind Anthony’s 26 points (14 in the fourth quarter) and a scorching 9-15 from three-point range.

Anthony passed LeBron James with 293 points and is poised to become the only player to win three Olympic gold medals. Save some of that fire for the upcoming season, Melo.
