Last night, the New York Knicks, who have been officially eliminated from playoff contention, made the trek over to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans, falling 91-99. The one bright spot for the team though came when a young fan ran out onto the court to give Carmelo Anthony a hug. Though it caught everyone off guard, Melo was not upset, instead smiling with the child as the referee motioned for him to get off the court. Anthony needs all the hugs he can get right now as the Knicks have missed the playoffs for the third straight season. Watch the clip below.
