I Love the 80s -- Kobe Makes History
The Lakers' Kobe Bryant scored a franchise-record 81 points in a 122-104 victory over the Raptors on Sunday. Bryant, who scored the second-highest total in league history, outscored the Raptors 55-41 in the second half. Lakers.com brings you deeper into Kobe's night.

I love the 80s
By Darren Misener


This time he played all four quarters.

A month after dropping 63 points in just three quarters, Kobe Bryant put his name No. 2 all time in NBA history by dropping a ridiculous 81 points on the Raptors Sunday night, in a 122-104 Lakers win. Not Since Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points over 40 years ago has the NBA seen a performance like this. Chamberlain scored 100 for Philadelphia against the New York Knicks at Hershey, Pa., on March 2, 1962. Now Kobe's name resides second with 81 on Jan. 22, 2006 in Los Angeles.

"It hasn't really sunk in yet," Bryant said after the game. "We had 4 days off coming up and I would have been sick as a dog if we lost. It turned into something very special." Special doesn't do it justice. Bryant drilled 28 shots from the field, including seven from three-point land, and went 18-20 from the charity stripe. There are few words to describe that kind of line. The man himself had a tough time grasping it.

"I couldn't even dream of this when I was a kid, not even in my dreams." Bryant said. "It's tough to explain, it just happened man."

Kobe scored 55 points in second half alone. That's more than anyone other than Kobe has scored in the NBA this season -- for an entire game. The 55 was also just four shy of Chamberlain's record for points in a half.

Kobe obliterated the Lakers all-time scoring record -- 71 set by Elgin Baylor in 1960. Only four players in NBA history had even scored over 70 points in a game, and none of those are named Michael Jordan. Chamberlain, Baylor, David Thompson and David Robinson were the only people to crack 70 until now -- you can add KB to that list.

After the game Lakers great Magic Johnson gave Bryant a call to congratulate him on the performance, a gesture that will leave a lasting effect.

"Talking to Magic after the game meant more to me than the 81 points," Bryant said. "Him calling me after the game meant more than the points."

STAPLES Center was electric with chants of MVP for Bryant as he drilled his 80th and 81st points from the free throw line, points that put his name on this list.

Kobe has not had double digit assists this season. Hard to have 10+ assists when you shoot 30+ times and your teammates can´t hit the few passes you play.

Kobe has not had double digit assists this season. Hard to have 10+ assists when you shoot 30+ times and your teammates can´t hit the few passes you play.

I was at that game and Kobe was 1 assist short of a double digits and assist. If he played the fourth he would have probably got it doe.
I was dissapointed at that game that Kobe only got 11 points. It was the first time I saw him play.But at least we won the game :jam2: .
This game is going to be different doe the Raps have been playing very good lately. The Lakers better not go soft on them.
I'm predicting Laker win 112-101- Kobe 44 points, 3assist, 12 rebounds

I don't know if we'll win this game or not. I predicted a 1-3 record before we started our 7 game trip. I think we'll either win this game or beat Golden State, not sure which one.

To win this, it is imperative taht we play great defense. We have to come out with aggression and passion. If we come out and piund them into the ground for 48 minutes on both ends, we will win this game. All I ask for from the guys is that they show that they at least give a sh*t. Kobe aside, if the other Lakers come out and play hard, play with heart, we will win. Kobe will do whatever he needs to to try and win. Its up to the other if they wanna help him.

Holy crap. I didnt know that and I dont want to know either.
How do I know Jesus loves me so much he doesn't want me working the whole weekend?

with all due respect I dont think that is a fair assessment, we lost to Sac because of a bonehead play and Phoneix at this stage of the game is simply a better team. We are no where near our worst ball of the year.

Win

102-93
