NBA roundup: Carmelo Anthony leads late rally as Portland defeat Toronto

The ten-time All-Star produced a vintage performance.

A late rally by the Portland Trail Blazers and the ageless skills of Carmelo Anthony proved enough to secure a gritty two-point victory over the Toronto Raptors.

The reigning champions were entitled to feel confident after dominating most of the night, but the visitors outscored the Raptors 32-21 in the fourth quarter to turn the tables.

It took a special effort from Carmelo Anthony – who notched a game-high 28 points after joining the Blazers following a year spent out of the league – to tie the game with a triple.

With just seven seconds left, the 17-year veteran took a pass, put his head down and charged towards the paint, pulling back to nail a mid-range bucket for the win.

Elsewhere, the Sacramento Kings went 114-103 over the Phoenix Suns, the Memphis Grizzlies were 119-112 against the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder finished 111-103 at the Brooklyn Nets.

The Los Angeles Lakers beat the New York Knicks 117-87 while the visiting Detroit Pistons won 115-113 over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
