Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant put on such a solid performance on Saturday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs, that he reminded opposing head coach Gregg Popovich of a former player named Michael Jordan.
While the Lakers did end up losing to a narrow 106-102 tally, "The Black Mamba" put on a scorching performance in the third quarter, nailing three consecutive three pointers. He even drew a foul while sinking his third one, which gave him the opportunity to convert it into a four-point play if his free throw enters the basket and scores, which it did.
During the said three-minute period in the third quarter when the scoring surge transpired, Bryant was able to pile in an instant 12 points. Bryant's efforts gave him a total of 25 points, along with four assists in the end game. And while he was playing one of his many memorable performances during his 20th and final NBA season, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich could not help but be in awe of what he had seen. more >>
