We Reminisce: Kobe Bryant scores 62 points in three quarters

Overshadowed by the 81 and even the 61 at Madison Square Garden, this is one of the great performances of Kobe Bryant‘s career that people sometimes forget: On December 20, 2005, Kobe put up 62 points on 18-of-31 from the field and 22-of-25 at the line, four threes, eight rebounds, three steals and, um, zero assists. And this wasn’t against some scrub team. The ’05-06 Mavericks would go on to the NBA Finals. Oh, and don’t forget Kobe produced those numbers while sitting out the fourth quarter. But about a month later he dropped 81 and turned this into not even the most memorable game of his season.
