On the last day of the NBA season Wednesday, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony won his first scoring title, and Golden State's Stephen Curry set a record for three-pointers in a season.

Anthony and Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant both sat out their games.

Anthony finished with 28.7 points per game to win the scoring title.

Durant averaged 28.1 points, falling short in his bid to join Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain as the only players to win four straight scoring titles.

Curry needed two three-pointers to reach 270 and pass Ray Allen's mark set in 2005-06. Curry finished with four three-pointers on Wednesday for a season total of 272.

• If he was still a member of the Boston Celtics, Ray Allen says he would have been at the finish line Monday watching the Boston Marathon, where two bombings occurred.

Allen told reporters a friend of his family was among those who lost a leg in Monday's deadly explosions, and that another friend owned the restaurant that employed the 29-year-old woman who was one of the three people killed.
