Carmelo Anthony stands by his man

Published Add your comment

New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony has has refused to criticise under-fire coach Mike Woodson following a fifth loss in six matches to Sacramento last night, insisting that he is fully focused on reviving their flagging play-off hopes despite a wretched run of recent form.

Woodson's woeful recent record has left the Knicks strongly linked with a change in management over the last month, a position which was not helped by a shock 106-101 loss to the Sacramento Kings.

The Knicks have big decisions to make during the All-Star break as the trade deadline looms large, with Woodson's flagging side two games back from a play-off spot in a substandard Eastern Conference.

Anthony's recent press conferences have largely been taken up by talk about trade moves and Woodson's future, but the Knicks talisman is adamant that Woodson's future is not a debate he is willing to enter.

He told the New York Daily News: "I am not thinking about that at this point.

“That has been an ongoing issue, ongoing story. Every day is a new story so he is still here and that is what we are dealing with.”

On paper Anthony's stats against the Kings looked superb, with a haul of 36 points against thr Kings masking a disappointing overtime period which saw the former MVP miss his final six shots.
