A At age 37 and in his nineteenth season in the NBA, Carmelo Anthony is experiencing an unusual phenomenon. The forward, who opens this season with the Lakers, has an affair with the Staples Center hoops, but a bad relationship with those of the rest of the courts.
He currently has 52% in triples, the best percentage of his career, sustained thanks to 64.4% of the eight home games (38/59) and despite 6.3% (1/16) of the three games that has played outside. Two staggering records for the good and the bad they do that Melo is averaging 20.6 points playing at home and only 9.7 when he does it as a visitor.
Throughout his career in the NBA, Anthony’s scoring statistics have been better at home than he was away, but nothing alarming for a player who has already played more than 1,200 games: 23.3 points and 36.8% in triples in front of their fans and 22.5 and e4.4%, respectively, against rivals.
With his strange 3-point percentages, Melo has become a staple for the Lakers this season. He has not started in any of the 11 games, but coming off the bench he is averaging 17.6 points per game and, if he maintains these benefits, he is, along with Tyler Herro (Heat), one of the main contenders for the Best Best award. Sixth Man. The veteran forward has fitted well, especially if he plays in Los Angeles.
