Kobe Bryant isn’t going to let the Lakers miss the playoffs, regardless of how many injuries the team suffers through. Playing all 48 minutes in another must-win game in Portland Wednesday – with less than a week left in the season, they’re all must-win – Kobe dropped 47 points on the Blazers, was a perfect 18-for-18 from the foul line, and also had one of the best blocks of his career, thwarting this Will Barton dunk attempt on the fast break. LA won, 113-106.
Can I interest you in video of every point Kobe scored? That’s below.
LA now leads Utah by one game for the final spot in the West. Both teams have three games left.
