Carmelo Anthony saves Knicks from yet another collapse, drills game-winner

At this point, it feels like once a week that we're either watching, reading, or learning about the New York Knicks blowing a late double-digit lead and collapsing like a house of cards with the game on the line.

On Saturday night, the story was no different. Leading by 10 with less than four and a half minutes left in the game, the Knicks coughed up the advantage and ultimately found themselves down by a point, with only seconds remaining, after a Jahlil Okafor converted a turnaround jumper.

But this night would end differently for New York and the loyal MSG fans, as Carmelo drilled a pull-up jump shot with the game on the line:
