Carmelo Anthony scored just four points in all fourth quarters of Jazz series
For Oklahoma City Thunder star forward Carmelo Anthony, this past first-round series against the Utah Jazz was quite a bitter way to end his first season with OKC. That was especially true for how he played down the stretch of those six games in the fourth quarter.
According to a tweet from YourSports, Anthony only managed to score a dismal four points combined during the fourth quarter.

That has to be an extremely frustrating thing to see for Thunder fans, as Anthony was not very much of a factor throughout the series. Anthony did not make more than six shots in any of the games, was a combined 0-of-8 from behind the arc over the final three games, and did not score in double figures in Game 5 or Game 6.
During Game 6 of Oklahoma City’s 96-91 loss to the Jazz that eliminated them from the playoffs, Thunder superstar point guard Russell Westbrook scored more than half of OKC’s points with a game-high 46 points on a whopping 18-of-43 shots from the field, 10 rebounds, and five assists.
In addition to Westbrook, center Steven Adams was the only other Thunder player to score in double figures with 19 points, a game-high 16 rebounds, and three assists on the night.
As for Anthony and star forward Paul George, the duo combined for just 12 points on a disappointing 5-of-23 shooting from the field.
