Carmelo Anthony won his first scoring title when he and Kevin Durant both sat out their games. Anthony finished with 28.7 points per game in becoming the first Knicks player since Bernard King in 1984-85 to win the scoring title. Durant averaged 28.1 points, falling short in his bid to join Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to win four straight scoring titles. The Warriors clinched the No. 6 spot by beating Portland, 99-88, as Stephen Curry set a NBA single-season record with 272 3-pointers. A shot with 6:49 left in the half put Curry in front of Ray Allen’s mark of 269 set in 2005-06.
