Melo played well in 2013 NBA All-Star game
"We competed today," Anthony said in his postgame news conference. "From the beginning of the game, we talked about it. At halftime, we talked about it amongst ourselves. We said we were going to go after it. It was a great game, hopefully one of the better All-Star games. Everybody competed."
Anthony competed by bringing different elements to the game in the opening period. He made a jump shot off a screen; he led a fast break, resulting in a Dwyane Wade dunk; he threw a slick, underhanded alley-oop pass to LeBron James for a slam on another breakaway; he nailed a 3-pointer, which he's becoming more known for; and then he scored in the paint with a reverse layup. At the end of one quarter, he had scored seven points in eight minutes, and chipped in three rebounds and two assists.
