Although highly improbable it could happen in the fact that Bryant right now has the green light to take over at any given time and eventually will again. I couldn't imagine Kobe pacing himself like he did vs Dallas again, when he hit 62 before Jackson and Kobe called the quits early in the 4th since Dallas was not coming back. The pace he set then was incredible and now to top it off with 81 vs T.O,wow.
I say highly improbable because like Sky, I agree that it would take an out of body experience and an energy level never seen before for a perimeter player, or any player to do it again. You have to wonder if a team would start using similar tactics that the sixers did to help Wilt to his historic night. Personally I wouldn't want to see it but if Kobe somehow has 70 by the end of the third someday would history repeat itself and would it be tainted. Odds of this lining up are very slim but if it presented itself you have to ask yourself the question "Will history repeate itself? would a team start intentionally fouling the other team to get their teammate the shots necessary to realistically go after the untouchable 100?
