With Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. out, Knicks F Michael Beasley has been thriving as he fills in for the team's top scorers. 

Beasley, who refers to himself as a "walking bucket," lived up to that moniker against the Thunder on Saturday as he poured in a team-high 30 points to spoil Carmelo Anthony's return to Madison Square Garden. It was the second time he scored 30 points this season. 

This was the type of production Beasley said he was capable in bringing to the Knicks, and he has been displaying it when the team is in desperate need of a playmaker.
