Kobe puts in the second highest point total in NBA history behind Wilt Chamberlain.
Chamberlain was the most dominating center at the time he scored 100 points.
Now I don't like Kobe's smug ass but what a fucking great individual performance!!
How the fuck does one man score 81 points?
The Lakers won the game too, 122 to the Toronto Raptors 104.
7 of 13 from 3-point land
28 for 46 field goal shooting
Free throws: 18 for 20
Scored 55 points in the second half
Kobe is the 3rd different player in history to break 60 twice in a season. The others were Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan.
First time anyone has broken 78 points in 44 years. (Wilt Chamberlain, again)
Normally when one player scores like that, that player's team loses.
