‘Melo sets record in MSG. Yeah, the Bobcats lost

Charlotte Bobcats 96 Final
Recap | Box Score
125 New York Knicks
Josh McRoberts, PF Shot Chart 30 MIN | 2-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 6 PTS | -34

Forgot that McRoberts was even on the floor in the 1st quarter when he had one foul and one assist. He’s one example of what style of game this ended up being.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF Shot Chart 18 MIN | 2-4 FG | 0-1 FT | 2 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 4 PTS | -18

Only played 18 mins, but spent most of it on ‘Melo Island. That’s about all.

Al Jefferson, C Shot Chart 31 MIN | 11-19 FG | 3-4 FT | 9 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 25 PTS | -36

Abused any defender that attempted to check him in the 1st half. I still am trying to grasp how the second half of this game was real, in general. I thought I died and woke up in an AAU game.

Ramon Sessions, PG Shot Chart 30 MIN | 3-8 FG | 6-6 FT | 1 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 12 PTS | -34

Sessions and Jefferson got a nice duo attack going in the 1st, but that was halted by ‘Melo.

Gerald Henderson, SG Shot Chart 32 MIN | 4-9 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 8 PTS | -30

I just wish he could get more involved in the offense with Jefferson on the floor.

Bismack Biyombo, C Shot Chart 17 MIN | 3-4 FG | 2-2 FT | 8 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 3 BLK | 0 TO | 8 PTS | +7

The numbers look decent, but this stat line is impossible to take seriously due to the fact that all of this came in junk time when zero defense was being played.

Jannero Pargo, PG Shot Chart 32 MIN | 4-11 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 8 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 11 PTS | -14

The tale of two halves — Pargo killed it in the first half (3-6 3FG) – second half, not so much (0-3). Nonetheless, this guy can really shoot the ball when he’s in rhythm.

Chris Douglas-Roberts, SG Shot Chart 16 MIN | 5-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 14 PTS | +1

Speaking of junk time. All of CDR’s points came in the final quarter.

Steve Clifford

I feel bad for you sir. Defensively, there’s nothing that negates a player what he wants when someone is playing like ‘Melo did tonight.

Two Things We Saw

  1. Carmelo Anthony scored 62 points tonight. That’s his career high and also the all-time points in a game record for Madison Square Garden. Go ahead, you can stand up and start clapping now.
  2. The Bobcats come home for a game against Chicago tomorrow night – probably close to a must win before their 4-game west coast swing beginning next Wednesday.
