But an interesting trend has emerged involving Carmelo Anthony.

Derek Fisher has opted to rest Anthony in the early portion of the fourth quarter of the Knicks’ last two games. And the move has paid significant dividends.

“I think it’s important to allow for a guy like Carmelo that is a great closer, a great finisher of games, to have the energy level to do so,” Fisher said.

Fisher has vowed to be smart with his usage of Anthony this season. He said in the preseason that he didn’t want to “abuse” the 12-year veteran.
