Anthony supplied seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 FT) and three rebounds across 26 minutes during Oklahoma City's 96-91 loss to the Jazz in Game 6 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony struggled to generate any meaningful production for the second straight came, leading his second consecutive seven-point effort. The 33-year-old put up single-digit attempts over the last two games of the series while spending extended stretches on the bench, as Jerami Grant saw additional opportunity in both games. Anthony finishes the series with averages of 11.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals across 32.2 minutes and heads into the offseason with a bit of uncertainty about his future after a serviceable first season in Oklahoma City.

Anthony supplied seven points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and two steals across 25 minutes during Oklahoma City's 107-99 win over the Jazz in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony's stat line exemplifies the relatively meager impact he had on the game, and the Thunder notably mounted a 35-point surge with him off the floor during an extended stretch in the third quarter. Anthony's scoring total was his lowest of the series, as were his shot attempts. He'll look to bounce back in Friday's Game 6, but given the success teammates Russell Westbrook and Paul George had while taking the full reins of the offense Wednesday, Anthony may be hard-pressed to play anything more than a strictly complementary role.

Anthony mustered 11 points (5-18 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 36 minutes during Oklahoma City's 113-96 loss to the Jazz in Game 4 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony had trouble finding the net for the third time in the first four games of the series, shooting under 30.0 percent for the first time during that span in the process. The veteran forward has now seen his scoring totals drop over those of the prior contest in each of the last two games, and he's yet to clear the 20-point mark in the series. He'll look to be much sharper in a critical Game 5 on Wednesday.

Anthony supplied 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds and three steals across 31 minutes during Oklahoma City's 115-102 loss to the Jazz in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony got off to a fast start and enjoyed a stellar shooting night overall, but his overall usage was down over the first two games. The 33-year-old had shot under 40.0 percent over that pair of contests, however, so his accuracy Saturday was a welcome sight. Anthony has been steady in his output over the first three games, but he may need to take matters up a notch in Monday's Game 4 to enable the Thunder to even the series at 2-2.

Anthony scored 17 points (6-18 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding nine rebounds and one steal across 38 minutes during Wednesday's 102-95 loss to the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony struggled from the floor and even more so from beyond the arc, missing seven times from three-point range. He picked up the slack on the boards as Steven Adams struggled, but he contributed little else at either end of the court. Anthony's struggles from the regular season have carried over into the playoffs, where he's averaging 16 points per game on 35 percent shooting from the floor and 25 percent from deep.

Anthony posted 15 points (5-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks across 37 minutes in Sunday's 116-108 victory over the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony served his role Sunday night for the Thunder, making shots when left open and working the ball around to Paul George and Russell Westbrook when one of them caught the hot hand. Anthony struggled from three, but that should only improve as the series goes on and he gets more comfortable working with the other two scorers in the postseason.

Anthony finished with 22 points (7-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block in 34 minutes during Saturday's 108-102 victory over the Rockets.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony was able to contribute 22 points Saturday but highlighted his fantasy deficits by offering little else. The scoring is going to be hot and cold depending on whether his shot is falling but he has really fallen away in a number of other categories this season. He is more of a points streamer in standard leagues.

Anthony finished with 12 points (4-16 FG, 0-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds and two assists in Monday's 111-107 loss to Golden State.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony was terrible Monday missing all nine of his three-point attempts on his way to 12 points and eight rebounds. He continues to have a negative impact on field-goal percentage while offering very little outside of some threes and rebounds. He remains owned in a lot of leagues, however, owners who are fighting for a championship could possibly do better if they look hard enough.

Anthony pitched in 16 points (6-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 29 minutes in Sunday's 109-104 win over the Pelicans.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony wasn't at his sharpest from the field, but a 50.0 percent tally from distance certainly helped his overall cause. The veteran forward has picked it back up on the offensive end over the last two games overall thanks to improved long-distance shooting, as he drained nine of his 18 shots from behind the arc during that stretch. While he's typically the third or fourth option in the Thunder option on many nights, his occasional offensive surges and steady work on the boards has helped him to respectable averages of 16.3 points and 5.8 rebounds in his secondary role this season.

Anthony mustered only six points (3-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist and one block across 29 minutes in Sunday's 108-105 loss to the Trail Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony's second consecutive six-point effort included another sub-30-percent effort from the field, as well as a second straight blanking from three-point range. The 33-year-old has partly made for his shortfall with some solid rebounding, but he's become much more of a wild card in the area of scoring than at any other point in his storied career. Factoring in Sunday's line, he's now scored in single digits in four of the last eight contests.
