(Elias Sports Bureau) Anthony recorded 30 points (10-28 FG, 4-8 3PT) and 10 rebounds over 39 minutes for his first double-double of the season in Nov. 2 win versus Miami. Anthony posted eight double-doubles and eclipsed the 30-point mark 14 times last season…Over the last 35 years, only one other player has registered at least 30 points and 10 rebounds in a season-opening game against the defending NBA Champion (LeBron James, 37 points and 10 rebounds at Dallas, 2011) (Elias).
