The rookie out of North Carolina also had eight rebounds, six assists, and three steals.
After the heroics, Anthony spoke to Bally Sports Florida in what was an awesome postgame interview.
Anthony was asked if he wanted the ball for the final shot and had confidence in making it: “Yeah. Yeah! Yeaaaaaaaah!”
He added about the play, “Not even going to lie to you, I wanted iso. I just knew if I got someone on an island they wasn’t gonna be safe.”
"I was bred for this," @The_ColeAnthony.
