Carmelo disappointed by Knicks 'unacceptable' loss

The New York Knicks dropped a heartbreaker to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night, falling 98-97 thanks to T.J. McConnell's buzzer-beating game-winner.

BOX SCORE:  76ers 98, KNICKS 97

The loss dropped the Knicks to 17-22 this season and left star forward Carmelo Anthony clearly frustrated following the game's conclusion.

"Very, very disappointing," Anthony said, according to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk. "... I don't even know what to say about this one."

It's the second time in the last five games the Knicks have lost on a buzzer-beating shot, and Anthony was blunt when asked after the game if it was an unacceptable loss.

"We should tell ourselves that it's unacceptable," Anthony added. "We were winning this game coming down the stretch. We were winning with 20-something seconds left. We came up short. So it should be unacceptable to all of us."

The Knicks won't have much time to regroup, as they will be back in action Thursday night against the Chicago Bulls.
