Kobe Bryant scored 81 points yesterday against the Toronto Raptors. This guy is amazing. Earlier in the season he had a 62 point game, and now this!
Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, now a Lakers assistant said: “I was at the game when Elgin got 71, so I’ve been at both games that set the Lakers franchise record. Elgin did it without the 3-point line. His game was attacking the hoop and hitting jumpers within 20 feet. Kobe’s range is unreal and he does it his way.”
Kobe: “Not even in my dreams. This was something that just happened. It is tough to explain. It is just one of those things.”
Phill Jackson: “I’ve seen some remarkable games but I’ve never seen anything like that before. It’s just a personal challenge for him to attack the whole team. It was not exactly the way you want to win a game, but when you have to win a game, it’s great to have that weapon to be able to do it. We rode the hot the hand.”
Kobe made 28 shots out of 46 taken and made 7 3-pointers out of 13 taken. He also made 18 out of 20 free throws.
MR: This guy is amazing!
