New York Knicks swingman, Carmelo Anthony, has single handedly ascended his name on the NBA’s Hall Of Fame list. Melo has broken the Knicks franchise record for the most points in a regular-season game by putting up an impressive 62 points on the scoreboard. Anthony’s 23-35 field goal shooting has also landed him in the record books as the first player to drop 62 points at the Madison Square Garden as well.
Carmelo Anthony broke Knicks legend, Bernard King’s 60-point record for most points from a player in the franchise. In the same night, Melo has also broken Kobe Bryant’s 61-point effort for the most points scored at the Madison Square Garden.
You could already sense that it would be an special night at the Garden as Melo banked in a buzzer-beating half-court shot, right before his team headed to the locker room at halftime.
Along with Melo’s 62 points, he also hailed in 13 rebounds in his 125-96 win over the Charlotte Bobcats.
