Last night, Carmelo Anthony scored 62 points against the Charlotte Bobcats at Madison Square Garden, topping Kobe Bryant's 2009 Garden record of 61, reclaiming for the Knicks a record that, before Bryant, belonged to the beloved Bernard King (60).

More impressive to me than the point total was that the total was amassed in the flow of the offense. Mike Woodson lifted Carmelo from the game with 7:18 remaining and the Knicks up 109-72 or Anthony could have scored more. The Knicks may not make the playoffs this season, and Anthony may leave after this season, but it was one magical night.
