Laker Throwback… Kobe’s 81

In honor of the game tonight against the Toronto Raptors, I just wanted to remind everyone that Kobe once dropped 81 points on this team. I still don’t think that it has ever been put into proper perspective. 81 points people, 81. His line for the night: 41 minutes played, 28 for 46 from the field(.609), 7 for 13 from 3(.538), 18 of 20 from the line(.090), 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, 1 blocked shot. 81 points. I watched this game from start to finish and the Lakers needed that kind of effort. They were down by more than 20 points in the first half and they were getting ran. Check the score, the game wasn’t tied until 85, and at that point there was no stopping KB8. Plus, about two weeks earlier, everyone was giving Kobe hell for not trying for the record when he scored 62 points in 3 quarters against the Mavs(the Mavs had 61 points). As Isaiah Thomas said, Kobe should’ve won the MVP right then and there. 81 points people.That season the Portland Trailblazers averaged 89 point per game.
