Carmelo Anthony has made a great start to the season so far and has been one of the best Lakers players.

Anthony went for a game-high 23 points vs the Rockets, with 14 of them coming in the first half. He led his team to the 85-95 win at home.

According to StatMuse, the veteran forward is shooting 50% and 52.2% from beyond the arc in seven league games. He is also averaging 16.7 points, the highest since 2016/17.

Carmelo Anthony is coming off the bench for the Lakers and his three-pointers will be key for the 17-time NBA champions in their quest for the title.
