VIDEO: Carmelo Anthony's Game-Winning Elbow, Shot

WASHINGTON, D.C. - There's one play from the Wizards loss on Friday night to the Knicks that sticks out like an errant elbow to the face. It has to do with Carmelo Anthony's errant elbow and Trevor Booker's face.

Anthony bullied the Wizards for 37 points in a 99-96 win, none more brutal than the eventual game-winner he connecting on, after connecting his elbow with the face of the Washington forward.

"Yeah, I caught a 'bow to the face," Booker said. "I was trying to go down to the ball, Amar'e set a pick, [Carmelo] end up elbowing me in the face.

"I thought I was going to get knocked unconscious," he added. "I couldn't think straight. so I couldn't switch."

Anthony, of course, didn't have a clue -- just a smile -- about the elbow after the game. This ('Melo's postgame) is Grade A #Trolling.

"I didn't -- I 'bowed him?" Anthony said. "He said I 'bowed him? Uh, I was just trying to get away. You could call it what you want. You know, I got free. The shot was there, I took it. I really don't know about the elbow."

You might be able to know about it. Watch this:

Flip Saunders mistakenly credited Amar'e Stoudemire with the chip on Booker, but called it a smart play.

"When things are bad, you can't get a call," he said. "In the last 10 seconds, refs aren't going to call fouls."

Carmelo is known for his crafty, precise offensive game. Just don't mistake his finesse for a lack a toughness.

"He's definitely strong," Booker siad. "He pushed off on me one time, and I was like 'Wow.' He's a strong guy."
