2001 Western Conference Semifinals, Game 4

Up 3-0 against the Sacramento Kings, Kobe slammed the door shut on the division rival's postseason hopes with a remarkable 48 points and 16 rebounds. At just 22 years old, the then-three-time All-Star proved that the stage wasn’t too big for him. Dissect the Kings’ defense with Kobe’s blistering speed and crash the boards in one of No. 8’s most memorable games.

Kobe Sets NBA Three-Point Record

Long before Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson made three-pointers cool, Kobe delivered a three-point performance unlike anything seen before. Against the Seattle SuperSonics, the Los Angeles Lakers guard knocked down a then-NBA record for most threes in a game, converting 12 of his 18 attempts from behind the arc. Let it fly from three-point land and recreate the magic from that electric night in 2003.

The Mentee Faces His Mentor

Mentee Faces His Mentor

From the moment Kobe set foot in the NBA, he was unafraid to go toe-to-toe with Michael Jordan every time they met, whether it was a regular season game or the All-Star Game. Go head-to-head as Kobe against his idol and mentor, MJ, and deliver a stunning 55 points— including breaking the Lakers team record with 42 points in a single half—en route to a commanding win.

Kobe Erupts for 62 Points In Three Quarters

No scouting report could’ve prepared the Dallas Mavericks for the offensive mastery Kobe showcased on December 20, 2005. In 32 minutes of action, Kobe took over against the Mavs, dropping 62 points in only three quarters of play. Outscore the entire Mavericks team as Kobe and put the game out of reach before the start of the fourth quarter.

Three-Point Barrage Leads to 65-Point Game

Coming into a matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers, the Lakers were on a seven-game skid—until Kobe decided that enough was enough. He put the team on his back and scored a whopping 65 points, knocking down eight of 12 three-point attempts. Drain three after three in this exciting duel and hoist the Purple and Gold to victory.

2008 Western Conference Finals, Game 5

2008 Western Conference Finals

Between 1999-2010, the Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs had nine NBA championships between them, creating a Western Conference rivalry between the two teams. In 2008, the Spurs were hoping to win back-to-back championships, but Kobe had other plans. Despite a triple-double from Tim Duncan, Kobe went off for 39 points and sent the Spurs back to San Antonio. Dash the Spurs' title hopes, tap into the Black Mamba’s 2008 MVP form, and help the team advance to the NBA Finals.

2010 NBA Finals, Game 7

2010 NBA Finals

Lakers vs. Celtics: one of the greatest rivalries in all of sports.

Endure a grueling, physical battle and will the Lakers to victory by crashing the boards and locking down defensively on the way to the title.
