Vintage Kobe carries Lakers past Grizzlies


By Bryan Chu, for NBA.com

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- Feet soaking in a tub of ice and leaning back in a chair, Kobe Bryant couldn't help but be in a chipper mood.

The league's leading scorer not only helped hand a 114-98 throbbing over the Grizzlies on Friday, but he also accomplished another milestone.

Bryant, 31, became the youngest player in NBA history to eclipse the 24,000-point mark. Bryant also recorded his third, 41-point performance in four games, on an efficient 19-for-30 shooting.

Asked how he felt, Bryant smiled and said "old."

"It's a great honor, to think back all the years that I've been here, all the things I've learned and mentors I've had, it's more so a testament to them."

The Lakers (5-1) have won four straight and have done so shorthanded. On Friday, the Lakers had both 7-footers sidelined, Pau Gasol (right hamstring) and Andrew Bynum (right elbow), but backup centers DJ Mbenga and Josh Powell managed to fill the void.

Mbenga filled the stat sheet early, recording nine rebounds in the first quarter and finished with 13 rebounds, five points and four blocks. Little-used Powell, who had 13 points, ran the floor well and even hit a 3-pointer.

There were nine lead changes in the first half and Memphis had a 51-49 lead at half behind the play of their three top scorers, Rudy Gay (22 points), Zach Randolph (21 and a game-high 15 rebounds) and O.J. Mayo (15).

But, it was the defensive end, mainly against Bryant, that left Memphis (1-5) on the losing end.

All night long, Mayo drew the assignment of Bryant and was baffled. By the third quarter, Bryant had four uncontested dunks against the undersized 6-foot-4 Mayo. If he wasn't faking Mayo out in the post, Bryant was falling away and hitting tough mid-range jumpers.

"He hits them on a lot of people," Mayo said. "I just happened to be that victim, that guy tonight.

"As a team we have to see that if one guy gets rolling, we have to bring that double-team and get it out of his hand. We weren't told to double-team. Hopefully that's a scheme we put in when we face them again."

Bryant said his offseason work with Rockets great Hakeem Olajuwon was a major reason why he has been so adept in the post this season.

"I'm not just out there wasting my time, wasting Hakeem's time," Bryant said. "You can't do nothing [against that] Dream Shake, man."

Asked what Lakers coach Phil Jackson felt about Bryant's performance, he lauded his killer instinct.

"What can I say?," Jackson said. "This is a guy that sees a weakness in a team and exploits it. Tonight they didn't seem to put their finger in the dyke; they just let the leak continue, so he kept going down in the post."

The Grizzlies have lost four in a row and are 0-4 on their Western Conference road trip with their final game against the Clippers on Saturday.

"We're all highly disappointed in ourselves," Mayo said. "As a group, as a team, we have to stay strong and stay firm."

If there's a positive for the Grizzlies it's that for three quarters, they managed to keep the Los Angeles' lead to single digits. It was midway through the third, however, when the Lakers got hot. A Derek Fisher assist to a wide-open Bryant for a double-pump, reverse jam ignited a 12-3 run capped by a Fisher 3-pointer, which gave the Lakers a 75-64 lead with 3:55 left in the third. Bryant had 15 in the quarter on 7-for-10 shooting. Bryant's scorching touch ended the quarter when he rattled in a 19-foot jumper before the buzzer to give the Lakers an 87-75 lead. As a team, the Lakers hit 16-for-24 shots in third period.

"What was it, eight straight shots?" Gay said. "It's tough when he's on like that for any team. For the most part he was the only one scoring. He was hitting some tough shots. We played some pretty good defense on him and he hit some tough shots.

"We're playing good halves, we have to put together a whole game. We haven't done that yet."

Notes: Gasol, who has been hampered by a right hamstring injury, was warming up before the game. Asked if he would be ready against New Orleans on Sunday, Jackson said, "I think so." The 7-foot Spaniard hasn't played a game since Oct. 10. "I'm already frustrated and a little disappointed it's taking this long for my taste," Gasol said. "Right now I'm just taking it one game at a time and not trying to get ahead of myself." ... Lamar Odom celebrated his 30th birthday with three points and fouled out in 30 minutes ... Ron Artest had his second straight solid game with 19 points ... Reserve Allen Iverson had a quiet night with eight points in 21 minutes.
