Melo Says Muhammad Ali Inspired His 62 Point Outburst

Knicks vs Pacers at Madison Square Garden

You know the Knicks couldn’t just have a good game, always has to be something extra.

Hours before he dropped 62 points at Madison Square Garden, Carmelo Anthony sat with his teammates in the locker room and watched a video interspersed with Knicks plays and inspirational words from Muhammad Ali. 

“Hearing the words of Muhammad and then getting out there making those first couple shots, I felt like it was going to be a good night,” Anthony said.
