Since his glory year at Syracuse (2002-03), Carmelo Anthony has been one of the premier scorers in the NBA.  But lately, he has taken it to new heights because he knows, like NBA fans know, that he must be the one to takeover games and beat the Heat if the Knicks are to reach the NBA Finals for the first time in forever.

'Melo has dropped 50 and 40, respectively, against the Heat and Hawks in two Knick wins.  Can he keep it going?  Bet him to.  The next three games are against the Bucks, Oklahoma City and Wizards (April 5, 7, 9).  The Bucks are average defensively, the Wizards are undersized and Anthony will want to rise to the occasion against the star-studded Thunder and Kevin Durant.  Don't be surprised  to see 'Melo net 30-35 in each of these games.

Or, he could drop more.  Because he is Carmelo Anthony.
