New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony set a new franchise record as he led the New York Knicks in a 113-97 win against the Orlando Magic.
Anthony scored 20 points to set a team-record with his 30th straight 20-point game, breaking Richie Guerin’s record, which was set during the 1961-62 season.
Teammate Amare Stoudemire was close to breaking the record during the 2010-11 season when he scored 20 points in 26 consecutive games. Stoudemire and Anthony combined for 35 points on 17-of-18 shooting from the field in the win Wednesday night.
The Knicks are currently the second-best team in the Eastern Conference with a 28-15 record, just 1.5 games behind the defending champion Miami Heat.
