Kobe goes crazy, scores 47 in win over Blazers
With the Lakers' playoff hopes still in the balance, Kobe Bryant has been taking it upon himself to will the team to victories down the stretch. Bryant played 48 minutes Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, the fourth time in the last six games that he has played at least 47 minutes. Bryant had arguably his finest performance of the season, scoring a season-high 47 points, while filling up the stat sheet well. Bryant added eight rebounds, five assists, three steals and four blocks, while turning the ball over just once, in a 113-106 win.
