Carmelo Anthony has completed another huge milestone, as the Portland Trail Blazers secured a 119-125 victory over the Dallas Mavericks Friday.
In particular, the future Hall-of-Famer became the 11th player to score 27,000 points in the history of the NBA. Anthony completed the feat, after a signature lean-back jumper over young Mavs’ superstar Luka Doncic.
The smooth forward finished Friday’s contest with 18 points shooting 6-of-11 having also three made attempts from beyond the arc.
Anthony is an invaluable member of a streaking Blazers’ team coming off the bench to provide an offensive spark. He averages 14.2 points shooting 42-percent from the field and 39-percent from deep.
After the win vs. Dallas, Portland improved to 25-16, which ranked them as the sixth-best team in the tough Western Conference.
