Kobe Bryant puts on another clinic on how he's a one man team in Los Angeles. He scores 81 points in a 120-102 win over Toronto. It's staggering when you think about it. Only Wilt Chamberlin has scored more points in the history of the NBA. He had 55 points in the 2nd half. 28 points in the 4th quarter alone. He shot 28-46 from the field. He shot 60% from the field, so you can't say he was taking bad shots. He was making everything last night. The rest of his team took 41 shots the whole game combined. The second highest scorer was Smush Parker with a laughable 13 points. Kobe didn't look to pass with his two assists. Heck if Michael Jordan was on his team, he wouldn't have even passed to him tonight.
A remarkable performance, by maybe the most clutch player in the NBA right now. As much as we sometimes loathe him, you can't aruge with who's should get the ball in the 4th quarter. At least this was done in a competitive game. The Lakers were losing by 14 in the 1st half and thanks to Kobe won by 18 points.
Watching shot after shot go in can be remarkable or sicken depending on which side of the Kobe fence you're on.
