One half of the historic night in the NBA was the end of the career of Kobe Bryant. While injuries over the past couple of years have taken Bryant’s game down a notch, last night he got his groove back. He finished the game with sixty points, four rebounds and four assists.
With the Lakers trailing by ten points with about three minutes left in the game, Bryant took over. He would score thirteen consecutive points. Check out Kobe’s stretch run here, via BroBible.
Bryant’s performance was so good that even former teammate/part-time rival Shaquille O’Neil even gave Mamba some love after the game.
