Carmelo Anthony's vision was blurred from an inadvertent poke to the left eye, which would explain his poor aim Sunday night.
"The rim kept moving," Anthony joked afterwards.
And when the first-quarter eye injury caused "a migraine" as Anthony called it, the Knicks' new All-Star forward removed his beloved headband to relieve the pressure building inside his shaved head. Nothing, however, seemed to be working for Anthony, who struggled to find the basket and his game all night.
Mike D'Antoni, however, did find a solution that worked for everybody. He removed Anthony.
