EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – His MVP hype may have dimmed since a torrid start to his season thanks to various injuries, but at 29.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game for a Knicks team that surprisingly leads the Atlantic Division at the midway point of the NBA season, Carmelo Anthony still warrants MVP consideration.
Part of the reason for that MVP consideration is his play in tight spots, bright spotlights and big games. Just ask the Nets.
