End of Game
LeBron James scored 18 of his game-high 31 points on drives Thursday. James was 7-of-8 (87.5%) from the floor on 10 drives, including four fouls drawn. James entered Thursday shooting 64.2% on drives, second among 137 players with at least 100 drives.
Carmelo Anthony scored a team-high 29 points but was 3-of-10 from the field when guarded by Shane Battier (8-of-10 against all other defenders).
From Elias: LeBron James is the 1st player since Shaquille O'Neal in March 2003 to post a calendar month (min. 5 games) with averages of 30 PPG, 8 RPG and 57% FG.
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined to shoot 18-20 (90%) inside the paint against the Knicks, the 4th-highest percentage they've shot in the paint together as teammates.
In the final minute of the second quarter, Boston's Marcus Smart appears to step on New York's Justin Holiday and injures his ankle. He is helped off the court and would not return.
Ricky Rubio executes a nice bounce pass to Karl-Anthony Towns, and Towns finishes the play with a dunk to extend the Timberwolves' lead.
The expectations for the Warriors are high this season, but the players are prepared for the test and ready to take on the competition.
