A Look Inside The First-Round NBA Matchups

LeBron James vs. Carmelo Anthony

Anthony averaged 29.8 points in April for the New York Knicks, but that was largely against power forwards he had quickness advantages on. Now he has to deal with James, his longtime friend and Olympic teammate who held him to only two baskets in the fourth quarter of the Miami Heat's 93-85 victory at Madison Square Garden on April 15.

What they're saying: "Carmelo Anthony is the best scorer in the NBA, but LeBron James is arguably the best defender in the NBA. (James) can shut (Anthony) down to where he won't be getting 30 or 40 a game against LeBron." — TNT analyst Charles Barkley.
