Yankees lineup today vs. Blue Jays

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."
