Why did Carmelo Anthony have an angry reaction to his game-winner against Philly? "I think it was more of an emotion of what was occurring up until that point, while we was in that situation. It came down to me making that shot when it shouldn't have come down to that."

Carmelo Anthony breaks down his game-winner: "Just some space and a good look at the rim. I think I jabbed him a little bit. He bit for it. Once I had that clear path it was just a matter of me getting the space that I want and the vision I want at the basket. At that point it was a matter of making the shot."

A Sixers team that's without Joel Embiid has overcome an 11-point deficit entering the fourth quarter to take a one-point lead with nine seconds left on the Knicks. If NY loses this game, it will have found a new low in a season full of them. The Knicks have final possession here.

The Knicks held an 11-point lead earlier in the fourth but it had been cut to three when Derrick Rose found an open lane and converted a layup to widen the cushion. He bailed on any triangle set that was planned and just attacked the rim.
