VIDEO: Carmelo Anthony knocks home game-sealing 3-pointer for Blazers vs. Grizzlies
Portland Trail Blazers veteran small forward Carmelo Anthony has been clutch down in Orlando, Florida.
That trend continued on Saturday against the Memphis Grizzlies, as Anthony hit a game-sealing 3-pointer to send the Blazers to the 2020 playoffs.
With less than 30 seconds left, Damian Lillard drove to the basket and collapsed the defense, eventually finding Melo from the corner 3-ball.
It was Anthony’s only 3 of the game. He was 1-of-6.
