Streaks are in the New York air this spring. The Knicks won their 11th straight game with last night’s 101-83 home win over the Bucks, Melo laced up the Jordan Melo M8 Advance for the fifth game in a row, and he notched 40 or more points for the third straight game with his latest stat line of 41 points, 14 boards, 1 assist, and 1 block. While it remains unclear why Melo switched back the Advance, you can’t argue with the results. His 5-game sneaker streak began on March 29 in Charlotte, and between then and last night he’s averaged 37.4 points. That’s nearly nine more than his season average.
“It’s April, I guess. It’s April. It’s time to go,” Anthony said during postgame interviews.
See, it’s the changing of the seasons. And maybe the shoes.
