Seven years ago Carmelo Anthony put on a show, and led the New York Knicks to a rare victory in Miami.

The Heat came into the game with a 32-3 record at home but were without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, and Anthony carried the Knicks to a 102-90 victory.

Not only did Anthony score 50 points, but he did so on just 26 shots. He went 18-26, including 7-10 on 3-pointers and 7-8 on free throws.

Anthony went on to lead the league in scoring, averaging 28.7 points per game. The Knicks went on to make the playoffs and won a playoff series. It remains the last season they made the playoffs.
