Carmelo Anthony made a statement at Madison Square Garden with a clutch performance against the Chicago Bulls to lead the New York Knicks to a 100-99 win in overtime on Easter Sunday in 2012.
Anthony delivered two hammer blows from beyond the arc, first sending the game to overtime with a triple, before burying the go-ahead three with 8.2 seconds left in OT.
"This is my house," Anthony screamed to the crowd after draining the second three-pointer, finishing with a game-high 43 points in the win.
Anthony's 43 points came on 16-of-31 shooting from the field, 4-of-5 from three and 7-of-9 at the free-throw line, adding seven rebounds and three assists.
"This was one of the top [shots]," Anthony said of his second three. "Overtime, Easter Sunday, everybody's watching, everybody's in the Garden, so this ranks as one of the top."

"This was a playoff game. We have a chance, we might play these guys in the playoffs if we keep doing what we're doing and get that seed, so this was a big statement game for us and we willed this one tonight," Anthony said.
After missing the past 12 games with a groin injury, Derrick Rose returned to lead the Bulls with 29 points in a back-and-forth scoring battle with Anthony all night.
