Carmelo Anthony believes that the New York Knicks are "playing to lose" during their run of poor form.

Carmelo Anthony has claimed that the New York Knicks are "playing to lose" as their poor form continued with a defeat to the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday.

The Knicks have lost nine games in a row, while the seven successive defeats at home is a new franchise record.

"I think we're playing to lose rather than playing to win right now," the 29-year-old told reporters.

"When you lose games the way we've been losing them at home, on the road, you start thinking a lot.

"You start playing a little tense. You start playing on your heels."

The Knicks face rivals Brooklyn Nets in their next game on Thursday night.
