Jan. 27, 2013 -- Always a dangerous threat from long distance, Anthony connects on nine 3-pointers in a 106-104 defeat of the Hawks, matching the Knicks' record for 3s made held by John Starks, Latrell Sprewell (twice) and Toney Douglas. "It was just a matter of me just taking them shots and making them," he says after his historic 9-for-12 performance from behind the arc. The night also marks another milestone; With a final haul of 42 points, he ties fellow scoring machine Richie Guerin's franchise record of 29 straight 20-point games.
