Twice, Anthony drew contact as he drove to the rim in the closing minutes. Both times, referees swallowed their whistle.
And the Knicks ultimately walked off the floor with their second loss of the year.
Neither the Knicks, nor coach Mike Woodson, complained about the non-calls after the loss. But they didn't have to. They said plenty with their body language after refs refused to blow their whistles.
Here's how it played out: Melo drove to the basket with about 2:20 to play and made a 180-degree circus layup that was called off due to a questionable offensive foul. Vince Carter slid over with Anthony in the air to draw the charge call. The Knicks were down five at the time.
Anthony also drove to the basket and took a shot to the face with 0:48 to play and the Knicks down 1. Shawn Marion swiped the ball before Anthony was hit by Chris Kaman and the refs swallowed their whistles.
Anthony has woofed at the refs several times this season after not getting calls. He already has a league-high four technical fouls for arguing. It's clear that he's not yet getting star treatment from the officials. But, based on league averages, it should be noted that Anthony's making his fair share of trips to the line.
Entering play Wednesday, Anthony ranked fifth in the league with 6.6 free-throw attempts per game.
Anthony was also 10th in the league with 59 overall attempts.
Prior to the Dallas game, Anthony was getting fouled on 14 percent of his attempts. That rate is consistent with what we've seen in the past few years. He went to the line on 12.8 percent of his shot attempts last season, 14 percent in 2010-2011 and 14.5 percent in 2000-10.
Question: But based on his reaction to calls, what you've seen thus far this season and what you witnessed late Wednesday night, does Anthony deserve more foul calls? Is he being treated fairly by officials?
