Kobe Bryant scored 41 points against the Raptors last night, shooting 11 of 22 from the field and 5 of 10 from behind the arc. He was also 14-16 from the free throw line to go along with 12 assists, 6 rebounds and 2 steals. Kobe needed a miracle end to the 4th quarter to make his night worthy of the MVP chatter he is getting this morning. Kobe his 3 of 4 contested three-pointers in the final two minutes of regulation to force overtime. In the extra period he scored 4 of the Lakers 9 points, including this dunk that put Los Angeles in the lead for good.
Kobe when asked about ‘fear': “I don’t f— with bees, man. Other than that, I’m not afraid of nothing.”
