(Bernard) King said his phone was “buzzing” with voice-mail messages and texts saying, ‘Melo broke your record. Melo broke your record.” And King couldn’t have been happier.

“It was a delight to know he played at such a magnificent level,” King said in a phone interview yesterday. “I had an opportunity to watch a great deal of the footage on the highlights. It was really special to see he really performed in such a manner, hitting jump shots, driving to the basket, and even the half-court shot looked like it was in rhythm, like it was a normal jump shot for him.

“I know how he felt during that game in performing that way. I’ve been there before. I’m delighted that the record was broken by him.”
