Melo is willing to sacrifice some scoring

Carmelo Anthony had some interesting things to say to ESPN New York 98.7 FM’s Dave Rothenberg about the Knicks’ offense and his approach with Amare Stoudemire this season.

Anthony reiterated that he is willing to sacrifice his scoring if it helps the team win games.

“(On) a night to night basis I want (the offense) be more well-rounded,” Anthony told Rothenberg.

Anthony says the Knicks need to “play within our means” on the offensive end.

Regarding his approach to scoring the ball, Anthony said he’ll “see how the game is going, check the flow of the game. I just want to win basketball games. If I score 10,11 points and we win basketball games, that’s my mindset right now.”
