It has been quite the road trip for Carmelo Anthony.

The Portland Trail Blazers are at the tail end of this six-game road trip that began at the Houston Rockets on January 28. While the Blazers are dealing with injury after injury after injury, the 18-year veteran has seen increased minutes. 

Despite being held to just four points against the Chicago Bulls last Saturday and then just six points at Milwaukee on Monday, Melo dropped 21 points against the Washington Wizards and moved to No. 13 on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, passing Dominique Wilkins.
