After missing two games with an ankle sprain, Anthony returned to action with his best scoring total since Jan. 20. The 33-year-old had been in a bit of a shooting slump, and while OKC's depth won't allow him to be the consistent 20-point threat he was in New York, Anthony's capable of much better than the 14.0 points he was averaging through his last eight games prior to getting hurt.
Carmelo Anthony scored 24 points Tuesday, going 10 of 22 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 120-112. Anthony grabbed seven rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 36:16 of playing time. He added one block and one steal. Anthony went 3 of 9 from 3-point range.
Anthony (ankle) will play in Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Royce Young of ESPN reports.
Anthony and Russell Westbrook (ankle) have missed the last two games for the Thunder, but have now been cleared ahead of Tuesday's contest, so they should be nearly at full strength. Look for Anthony to slot into his typical starting role at power forward and the Thunder aren't reporting any restrictions, so look for him to take on a full workload. With Anthony back in the lineup, Patrick Patterson should move back into a much smaller bench role, with Jerami Grant also likely losing some minutes.
