Anthony started against the Phoenix Suns and scored two points and grabbed three rebounds in 2:48 before leaving the game. He sat on the bench the rest of the first half and then left the building at halftime, according to a team representative.

Anthony's streak of scoring in double figures ended at 134 regular season games. The last time he failed to score at least 10 in a game was Nov. 30, 2008, against Houston, when he scored two points.
