NEW YORK, N.Y. - Carmelo Anthony has scored a Knicks-record 62 points, most at the current Madison Square Garden, in New York's game against the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night.

Anthony set the records when he banked in a short jumper with 7:24 remaining, giving the Knicks a 109-72 lead. He broke Bernard King's team mark of 60 points and passed Kobe Bryant's building record of 61, set five years ago.

Anthony shot 23 of 35 from the field, including a make when he took off from midcourt at the halftime buzzer, and grabbed 13 rebounds.

He passed Kevin Durant's 54 points for most in the NBA this season.
