KOBE BRYANT, Los Angeles Lakers all-star shooting guard scored 81 points Sunday night; the second highest total ever in the history of the NBA. Wilt Chamberlin scored 100 points decades ago. He also scored 78 points.
Previous Lakers record was 71 point by my beloved Elgin Baylor in 1960.
KOBE scored 55 points in the second ½ alone. His was an incredible feat.
