Melo gets stuffed at the rack, scores 18 in 2nd game as a Blazer
Carmelo Anthony scored 18 points on 6-for-15 shooting, including 3-for-5 from 3-point range, in the Blazers 137-129 loss at Milwaukee on Thursday night.
Melo played 29 minutes and added 7 rebounds and 4 assists to his stat line in game number two with the Blazers.
For the (brief) season, Melo is averaging with Portland: 14 ppg, 26.5 minutes per game, 34.5 FG %, 62.5 % 3pt, 5.5 rebounds and 2 assists.
He did have a less than stellar moment at the end of the first half, driving down the lane only to get stuffed at the rim on a dunk attempt by Brook Lopez.
