There was a major part of NBA history made this evening in the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, as star forward Carmelo Anthony proved once again that he is one of the more pivotal scorers in the entire league by dropping a franchise record 62 points on the Charlotte Bobcats, in a game that is still ongoing at the moment.

The Knicks are at home tonight against the Bobcats as they look to get their 16th win on the season and hopefully begin to salvage what’s left of this season, as there’s still time left.

Often overlooked by the likes of LeBron James and Kevin Durant because of the team’s overall record and lack of high-profile success recently, Anthony is one of the better shooters in the game today and his performance tonight showed that once again, and it’s even more fitting that it happened inside the Garden.

For the 62–which is where it stands right now–’Melo shot 23-of-35 and made all 10 of the free throws he attempted.
