Carmelo Anthony made his Rose Garden debut on Wednesday night against the Thunder and Blazers fans welcomed him to Portland with loud cheers.

Melo was in the starting lineup for the 136-119 win over Oklahoma City.  He dropped 19-points during his home debut.

After playing in just 10 games a season ago, Anthony is averaging 16.6 per game through his first five games with the Blazers. 

Not bad for a guy who wasn’t getting any looks a few weeks ago.
