    Default Re: Would Kobe have scored 100 points...

    All of Kobe's 81 wasn't needed, though. Go to 9 minutes in the video, Kobe hit a 3 to give him 70, the Lakers were up by 15 with 4:51 left. By that point in time there was simply no chance in hell Toronto was coming back in that game. The rest of the way was basically a meta-game of how high he could push the total and his teammates facilitating it by staying out of the way. Obviously impressive, but it's not like Kobe scored 81 and they won by 3 or something like that. Hell at 9:35 the commentator even says 'he's got the record now, just run the offense but you get caught up as a team'. They were up by 15 with under 2 minutes, and Kobe was still firing when in any normal situation, the best player would have been pulled. Now watch some Kobe nut try to dismiss it.

    If you get to 70 early in the 4th, you have to go for it. You have to.
