Czar Trivia

On January 22, 2006 Kobe Bryant lit up the Staples Center scoreboard like a supernova when he racked up a career-high 81 points in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 122-104 win over the Toronto Raptors. The future Hall-of-Famer’s record-making performance goes down as the second-highest number of points scored by an individual player in NBA history. Philadelphia Warriors center Wilt Chamberlain set the NBA’s single game scoring record with his 100-point bonanza against the New York Knicks on March 2, 1962.
