58pts vs Charlotte in a 3OT thriller. (2007)
Kobe made the game winner two years ago but Charlotte won it last year despite Kobe's 35. It's always a big event when Kobe comes to town. And the largest crowd in Bobcats history won't be disappointed.
#24 was hot early hitting 6 of his first 7 shots, finishing the half with 27pts. Kobe came up big in the clutch, making three straight shots -- the last one giving 47pts (19/33 FGS at this time). But Kobe seemed tired after that, missing 6 straight through the 1st two OT, with no one else on his team helping him. But Kobe is Kobe and he found a way to tie the game on a three pointer to force a 3rd OT. He fouled out in the final minute, finishing the nigh with a 58pt effort.
He was clearly tired in the 3OT and no other Lakers was capable of helping him -- story of the season. Even if he failed to give the Lakers the win, Kobe put on a show with his 3rd highest scoring total at that time.
Fadeway shots, dunks, driving lay-ups...Kobe at his best.
