Carmelo Anthony slapped his hands in frustration in the fourth quarter on Monday when he didn't get the ball in the post.
He didn't join the huddle during a third-quarter timeout.
His frustration then boiled over to the locker room after the Knicks' 104-99 road loss to the Bulls.
"I mean, it sucks," he told reporters after the Knicks lost their sixth straight to fall six games under .500 and into ninth place in the Eastern Conference. "The situation we're in right now, sucks. Losing basketball games sucks. They way we've been losing games at the end of game, sucks. It's not a good feeling right now."
The Knicks are 2-8 since Anthony returned in late Feb. 20. They reeled off seven straight wins when Anthony was out with a groin injury and Jeremy Lin was running the offense. Anthony and Lin haven't found a way to be effective together on the floor. The Knicks' points per 100 possessions are down since Anthony returned and their allowing opponents to score more points per game.
There are more questions than answers surrounding this team right now.
