NEW YORK — Carmelo Anthony, for a split second, looked at me incredulously and then gave one of his customary smirks as he stood in his locker.
“We’re not thinking about the Heat right now,” Anthony said. “After we come back from Washington, maybe Saturday in practice you can ask me something about the Heat.”
Per Anthony, the Knicks are focused on tonight’s matchup against the Washington Wizards and are looking to avenge the loss they sustained at the hands of John Wall and Co. back on Feb. 6.
But with all due respect, the Wizards aren’t the defending Eastern Conference champions and the Knicks won’t have to go through them to advance to the NBA Finals.
