Carmelo Anthony has been playing at very high standards for the Portland Trail Blazers and told Rachel Nichols of ESPN he is ‘at peace now’.
Anthony said it took him a while to get over what happened during his time with the Houston Rockets, but admitted he is in a great shape now, both mentally and physically.
“I’m at peace now. I’ll be honest – after the Houston thing, it took me a while to bounce back mentally, emotionally, to get back on my own square. But If you watch me play now, it’s a different vibe, different energy. I really take it one day a time,” Anthony told Nichols.
Anthony posted 26 points (10/17 shooting) and helped the Blazers survive the Dallas Mavericks (131-134), as Portland moved to the eighth place in the West (34-39).
