In what was the home debut for Carmelo Anthony at the Moda Center, the 10-time All-Star had the most efficient shooting game of his career.

He finished with 19 points on 9-of-11 from the field, adding four rebounds and two assists. In 29 minutes of action, Anthony was a +27 in the Blazers' 17-point win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

He got a huge cheer when he was introduced as part of the starting line-up and later in the fourth quarter, the home crowd showered him with chants of 'Melo, Melo'.

Anthony's most efficient shooting performance comes after he had dropped a season-high 25 in the team's 23-point win in Chicago. In that win, Anthony passed Alex English for the 18th spot on the league's all-time scoring charts.

The Blazers have now won consecutive games for just the second time this season - the first since the opening week of the campaign.
