Watch: Carmelo puts hand on Curry’s head while playing defense

Monday February 1st, 2016

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Late in the Knicks’ 116–95 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony tried to guard Stephen Curry in a very peculiar way. He rested his hand on top of Curry’s head.

The method didn’t work very well. Anthony picked up a foul, and Curry hit a deep shot after the whistle anyway.

Curry, who finished with 13 points on 5-of-17 shooting, was cut on the forehead during the play.

Draymond Green posted an NBA-leading ninth triple double this season with 20 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for Golden State. He also tied Tom Gola’s franchise record for triple doubles in a season.



Klay Thompson scored a game-high 34 points in the Warriors’ seventh straight win, which improved them to 44–4.
