Coming off a 7-of-26 shooting performance, Kobe Bryant scored 50 points while hitting 18-of-25 shots vs the Seattle Supersonics in 2007.
“If the jumper is on, we’ll ride it out,” Bryant said.
“He was brilliant. He was just determined. He’s special,” said Sonics Coach Bob Hill.
As brilliant as he was, I think his 45 point game in 2003 was more impressive. In that game, he knocked down a NBA record 12 threes on 18 attempts.
