As Carmelo Anthony enters his 15th season in the NBA, his new Oklahoma City Thunder uniform won’t be the only change in his look. He also apparently won’t have a new Jordan signature sneaker to wear.
“Next man up is the mentality we have to have,” coach Mike Yeo said after Carter Hutton made 16 of his 32 saves in the third period to help the Blues remain unbeaten with a 3-1 win over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.
Carl Gunnarsson and Brayden Schenn scored first-period goals for St. Louis, which improved to 4-0. Jaden Schwartz added an empty-netter with 1:47 left.
“The guys battled really hard,” Yeo said. “Our veteran players have really raised their game and stepped up.”
After the Rangers dropped to 1-3, left wing Rick Nash was asked if the team was concerned about its start to the season.
“There has to be,” Nash said. “With all these home games early on, these are the games that when you get to March and April, that really mean something.
“There’s definitely an urgency to fix this and start winning some games.” The Thunder have one preseason game left — Tuesday at Denver — before nine days off to prepare for their opener against the Knicks. It’s all a work in progress. Although a close call against Melbourne Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys United certainly wasn’t something they expected, nobody is sweating a few rough patches, especially Cheap Chelsea Jerseys because there is a belief within the team that they can be special defensively.
