In Portland’s last game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Melo surpassed Paul Pierce at 15th place in NBA’s all-time scoring list. Anthony now has just one point more than Pierce – 26,398 to 26,397, but it’s enough for him to find a place in the Top 15.

It has not been easy for Carmelo Anthony since he left the New York Knicks in 2017. The Atalanta Hawks waived him, while at Houston Rockets, he played no more than just 10 games. He was traded again to the Chicago Bulls, but his stint there was another disappointment.
It seems that now Melo finally found his home again at the Portland Trail Blazers. They needed him, and he needed them – it was a perfect match. Carmelo Anthony’s achievement was honored by the Trail Blazers, who gave him the ball after the game.
